An Autumn 2017 Kids' Indie Next List "Top Pick" Title
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 her crow friend 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 experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever. Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, Wishtree is Katherine Applegate at her very best, writing from the heart.
