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.

Beautiful story!

I enjoyed this audio book just as much as my children that are 3,7,8 & 10. The story was beautiful and teaches a great lesson as well as unlocks the imagination.
The narration was wonderful as well.

MAGICAL!

I am nine. I have read three of Katherine Applegate's books: The One and Only Ivan, Crenshaw, and Wishtree! I love them all! They each leave me wanting to be a better person. The Wishtree taught me about accepting others, especially those who are not like us.

Friendships come in many forms. This is a story of a friendship between a tree, a boy, and a girl. It was MAGICAL!

By the way, if you like the Wishtree, you will love The One and Only Ivan, my favorite of the three.

Excellent and a delightful read!

Everyone ought to read this book, children and adults alike. Children will love it and adults will ponder it. This book shows that children can be easily taught and they can often be our best teachers.

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."
