Synopsis

This is the Tree A Story of the Baobab by Miriam Moss

The ancient and curious baobab tree is the centre of this evocative and informative book about the wildlife of the wide African plain. Old as a volcano, the distinctive 'upside-down' tree has great cultural significance and plays a central role in the lives of numerous and varied creatures. The book traces activity around the baobab throughout a day. Miriam Moss's prose poem combines with Adrienne Kennaway's vivid and beautiful artwork to capture the magic of the wonderful and diverse wildlife of the African plain.
