Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, September 2017

Wishtree is the story of a 10-year-old Muslim girl and the redwood tree who witnesses her loneliness in an unwelcoming town. Red (the tree) decides to make a difference in the girl’s life, and what follows is a magical portrait of friendship in the face of fear and kindness in the face of hatred. It’s the perfect book for this moment in our country, written by Newbery Medal winner Katherine Applegate. Kids of all ages should listen to Wishtree for the important message, but they will love it because the characters are also funny and full of heart. —Sonja, Audible Editor


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.
