The Last Tree
This product is currently sold out.
This second picture book from Waterstones Children's Book Prize nominee Emily Haworth-Booth is an eco-fable with the feel of an instant classic, while also being topical in the current environmental and political climate.
The story follows a group of friends seeking a place to call home. The desert was too hot, the valley too wet, and the mountain too windy, but the forest was perfect. The friends soon wanted to build shelters, which became large houses. All too soon they wanted to control the environment and built a huge wooden wall around the community, which shut out the wind, but also created problems. And gradually the forest became thinner, until there was only one last tree standing. It was down to the children to find a solution...
