Book Résumé

Katherine Applegate, Charles Santoso: “A red oak tree and a crow help their human neighbors work out their differences”– “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 that 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”– (Fiction, Children)
