Red is a very old oak tree with a unique perspective on the neighborhood, she's seen it all through the many years that she has been standing and upholding the tradition of Wish Day, a day when the folks in the area adorn the tree with wishes. This many layered tale is a lovely and gentle reminder of how to graciously move about our ever-changing world. — Jessica Wood
The New York Times-bestselling story of kindness, friendship, and hope.
Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . .
Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree"--people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with a crow named Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this wishtree watches over the neighborhood.
You might say Red has seen it all.
Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experience as a wishtree is more important than ever.
Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, this is Katherine Applegate at her very best--writing from the heart, and from a completely unexpected point of view.
