In this first-of-its kind foraging story, we follow a young Vermont boy and his four-legged pal, Buddy, to hunt edible mushrooms through lush woodland landscapes. We find morels in springtime, chanterelles and lobster mushrooms in summer, and black trumpets in autumn.

 

Curious about mushroom foraging?

Mason teaches us it’s never too early to learn, and never too late to start.

Mason’s enthusiasm for collecting mushrooms is palpable. After his mushrooming adventures, he’s pictured with one adult inspecting the finds and then cooking: a morel omelet, pasta with chanterelles, lobster sauté, and crispy black trumpet chips. Korbonski’s watercolor illustrations are evocative.

I love Mason Goes Mushrooming, reminding me of the wonder of the forest, more importantly, my 2 and 4 year old sons love it too.
