“Warm and thoughtful, this story is told from the point of view of an ancient oak tree who has seen it all. Bestselling creator Katherine Applegate gets readers rooting for the old tree, At the side of the people and animals who come to rely on it. The shorter length and strong plot are appealing for middle grade readers who are growing into novels with less illustrated narrative and more complex subject matter.” – Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
