    An illustrated book for all ages, it tells the story of a gang of mushrooms and their attempt to save the forest. The protagonist of the fungi tale is Penny Bun, whose forest home is under threat from developers who wish to destroy the fragile ecosystem that supports mushroom, plant and human life.   Rovelli tears down these assumptions one by one, revealing a strange universe where at the most fundamental level time disappears.
