In the second collaboration between Kate Endle and Caspar Babypants, a young girl's fascination with nature is captured in colorful spreads and a gentle sing-song text. The artist's signature cut-paper collages are full of detail, and the scenes are based on one of Kate Endle's enduring memories from her own childhood in which she wished she could commune with the birds, frogs, rabbits, and butterflies that she encountered. Readers are invited to share that sense of wonder and love for the animal world in this captivating book. Also included are free MP3 downloads of the song based on the text of My Woodland Wish performed by Caspar Babypants.

His wife, Kate Endle, has influenced his transformation and writing style for kids. Chris also composes music for commercials and television.
