A Forest of Stories Magical Tree Tales from Around the World by Rina Singh

This unique collection of folktales, compiled by Rina Singh, encourages us to rethink our relationship with trees through the telling of fantastic tales filled with dancing palms, healing fig trees and magical cherry blossoms. Illustrated in radiant hues by artist Helen Cann and containing notes about the individual characteristics of each species, this vibrant collection will encourage children and adults alike to appreciate the essential place of trees in our lives, and help them to translate their appreciation into the desire to protect the trees of the world.
