    'Heart-warming ... a celebration of the world around us at a time when we need it the most'
    Creative Review

    Bird loves to sing in the towering tree at the heart of the jungle. It feels like home.
    When the season changes she must say goodbye, but she isn't ready to let go.

    Award-winning designer Coralie Bickford-Smith takes us on a lyrical and enchanting journey with Bird and her animal friends. Exploring vibrant woodlands and magical night-time skies, we fly with Bird through every page and learn the story of the tree and what will happen when it is time for Bird to go.

    Beautifully illustrated and lovingly told, The Song of the Tree speaks to the universal search for belonging and reminds us of the importance of community, friendship and the natural world.

    'Exquisite ... vivid ... each page feels alive' Observer
