The Secret Book of Lichens written by Kristupas Sabolius, and illustrated by Aistė Ambrazevičiūtė is a walk through the mind and imagination of lichens spread across the forest. The short stories tell of lichen love, their mathematics, values and other important things. These compound creatures are never alone and know great ways to make friends. Perhaps that's why, when looking at lichens, people understood what symbiosis is - knowing how to live together. Composed of allied fungus and algae, these creatures have special powers - for example, they can easily survive in space and melt rocks. And this one particularly special lichen, Graphis scripta, was even called the script of the forest.

This small book for small hands, including the diagram of how a tree becomes a book, is designed by Goda Budvytytė.
