Finn and the Friends of the Forest



Finn is a young boy who was transformed into a mountain adventurer by his wilderness-loving Granny and a magical backpack called BP. In the sequel to Finn and the Magic Backpack, Finn, Granny, and BP set out on another grand adventure—this time camping overnight in the backcountry. Along the way, they meet the characters who make the wilderness what it is, learning what it means to be a friend of the forest. With captivating, full-colour illustrations and digestible nuggets of wilderness wisdom, this story will inspire children to get outside, explore their world, and respect nature.


Julie Flynn was born and raised in the North East of England. After a brief visit to Canada, she immigrated in 2001 and made North Vancouver her home. She soon developed a love for the outdoors especially trail running in the mountains and forests. Her running adventures have inspired her to explore writing. In particular, a 200-mile foot race in the Italian Alps where she used many of the Ten Essentials more than once. The proof of their importance and her imagination has been captured in her magical children’s books. This is her second title.
