The Perfect Tree by Chloe Bonfield


The Perfect Tree by Chloe Bonfield

Jack is searching for the perfect tree--one that he can chop, hack, and stack! But when it becomes too hard to find, Jack stumbles across three unlikely friends who want to show him their perfect trees. In this lively, enchanting story, The Perfect Tree is a reminder to notice the wonders we often overlook, and to value our friendship with the natural world.


A subtle sustainability message is delivered in this engrossing debut picture book. --Booklist The slightly quirky, dark and nature-colored images of mixed rural/urban scenes and influences keep all the jagged portraits of trees, boy, and creatures fresh and engaging. The Perfect Tree can be enjoyed by children ages 3 and older. They will enjoy poring over the complex, colorful scenes of trees and other living creatures. --Midwest Book Review Chloe Bonfield has written a charming story with a lesson tucked neatly within it. The real strength of this book is the captivating, detailed illustrations that almost look like mixed media collages, but are instead beautifully creative and unusual for the genre of picture books. --San Francisco Book Review
