• A star book for all ages ... the sort you want to keep for ever

  • I would like to frame each page

    Guardian, Books of the Year
  • My picture book of the year ... outstanding

    New Statesman
  • Another exquisite, clothbound tale from Coralie Bickford-Smith... [her] illustrations are so vivid and patterned, reminiscent of traditional African wax prints, that each page feels alive. The night-time stars and fireflies sparkle, though there's no glitter or foil used, while elsewhere the text swoops bird-like across the page.

  • Never have the woods looked more beautiful than in this exquisite new fable about growing up, exploring the world and understanding where you belong.

    Angels and Urchins Magazine
  • Coralie Bickford-Smith depicts nature at its most majestic and tells a lovely fable about belonging

    Financial Times
  • A heart-warming and exquisitely-illustrated story, for Bickford-Smith The Song of the Tree is a celebration about the world around us and the importance of the natural world at a time when we need it the most.
