'Heart-warming ... a celebration of the world around us at a time when we need it the most' 
Creative Review

Bird loves to sing in the towering tree at the heart of the jungle. It feels like home.
When the season changes she must say goodbye, but she isn't ready to let go.

Award-winning designer Coralie Bickford-Smith takes us on a lyrical and enchanting journey with Bird and her animal friends. Exploring vibrant woodlands and magical night-time skies, we fly with Bird through every page and learn the story of the tree and what will happen when it is time for Bird to go.

Beautifully illustrated and lovingly told, The Song of the Tree speaks to the universal search for belonging and reminds us of the importance of community, friendship and the natural world.

'Exquisite ... vivid ... each page feels alive' Observer

'Wonderful, poetic ... a beautiful telling of a universal theme' Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading

Review

Another exquisite, clothbound tale from Coralie Bickford-Smith... [her] illustrations are so vivid and patterned, reminiscent of traditional African wax prints, that each page feels alive. The night-time stars and fireflies sparkle, though there's no glitter or foil used, while elsewhere the text swoops bird-like across the page ― Observer

Depicts nature at its most majestic and tells a lovely fable about belonging ― Financial Times

Never have the woods looked more beautiful than in this exquisite new fable about growing up, exploring the world and understanding where you belong ― Angels and Urchins Magazine

Heart-warming . . . a celebration about the world around us and the importance of the natural world at a time when we need it the most ― Creative Review

Wonderful, poetically told . . . beautifully designed on the page to match the spirit of the words, tells of the importance of shelter and its power to encourage confidence and tolerance as well as empowering development and independence. The interdependence of the bird and the tree in this story is a beautiful telling of a universal theme -- Julia Eccleshare ― LoveReading

Magical ... an ode to nature -- Best Children's Books of 2020 ― Observer
