Seven hours and seven trees and seven stories to tell...   Olive's best friend is an oak tree, and it is in danger. As she tumbles into its magic world, she makes it a promise. From deep roots to high branches, a Persian garden to an underwater forest, from tulip trees to wild apples to vengeful box, she listens as trees tell her stories for all time - and she keeps her promise.   Including science pages interspersed between the stories, with glorious illustrations throughout by talented artist Lyda Corry, this is a perfect gift for every curious and nature-loving child!   "A joy and a work of art" Costa and Carnegie winning author Hilary McKay "Terrific and inspirational" The Irish Times "Wonderful" The Metro "Told with elegance and wit" I-paper, Christmas choice "Will inspire and enchant young readers" Lancashire Post An Observer Book of the Month A Times Book of the Week A Toppsta Book of the Month School Reading List Book of the Month Love Reading4Schools Staff monthly staff pick     ZEPHYR, November 2021 Rights sold: Audio, W F Howes Italy, Piemme Turkey, Anatolia Lit Poland, Nasza Ksiegarnia         BUY FROM BOOKSHOP.ORG
