The Forest in the Tree: How Fungi Shape the Earth
Ailsa Wild, Aviva Reed, Briony Barr and Gregory Crocetti

This is a story about trees and fungi connected through a 'wood wide web' — told by one tiny fungal spore. A little fungus meets a baby cacao tree and they learn to feed each other. They cooperate with a forest of plants and a metropolis of microbes in the soil. But when drought strikes can they work together to survive?

The fourth book in the Small Friends Books series, this science-adventure story explores the Earth-shaping partnerships between plants, fungi and bacteria.
