Publisher's Summary

Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories....

Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree" - people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with her crow friend, Bongo, and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this "wishtree" watches over the neighborhood.

You might say Red has seen it all. Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever.

Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, Wishtree is Newbery Medalist and New York Times best-selling author Katherine Applegate at her very best - writing from the heart and from a completely unexpected point of view.

    "fast, good, break from reality"

    The author used descriptions that fell in love with. I wish I were as creative. my favorite was, "the stars freckled the sky."

    "Beautiful story"

    This is a great story about kindness, friendship, family, Heritage, and so much more. I loved how well everything tied together. It was thought provoking and made me want to be a kinder person.
