This first-of-its kind foraging story, Mason Goes Mushrooming takes us on a woodland treasure hunt. We follow a young boy and his four-legged pal, Buddy, to hunt edible mushrooms through lush Vermont landscapes, morels in springtime, chanterelles in summer and black trumpets in autumn. Author (and Mason's mom) Melany Kahn quells common fears and puts the "us" in mushrooms, by weaving simple education through a playful, fungi-finding adventure. Four kid-friendly, forest-to-frying pan recipes highlight the flavor notes of the mushrooms featured. A short identification guide is provided for newbie foragers. Illustrator Ellen Korbonski enchants with evocative watercolors capturing the beauty of the mushrooms, the thrill of the hunt, and Mason's fertile imagination, in a style that pings with the charm and timelessness of an enduring classic.
