Look, I see the word "charming" thrown around a lot in jacket copy and reviews, but this book was, actually, charming and heartwarming to me. Yeah, it's all neatly wrapped up in a bow in the end, but sometimes that's just how middle grade fiction is. And to be honest, I need a little levity in my life at the moment between the current political situation and end of my master's program.

I loved having the point of view of a long-lived tree, loved the slipped in little bits of nature education (I'm a big sucker for that, it's part of why I enjoyed [b:Catfishing on CatNet|41556068|Catfishing on CatNet A Novel|Naomi Kritzer|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1553558779i/41556068._SY75_.jpg|64836558] so much (and can't wait for it to publish!)), the wonderful personalities of all the animals, and heck, I loved the ultimate solution to the central problem of the narrative. Red's existential threat felt a little overdone, though.

Also, the illustrations are gorgeous. All my respect to [a:Charles Santoso|7205182|Charles Santoso|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/m_50x66-82093808bca726cb3249a493fbd3bd0f.png].

There are some publisher-y things I wish I could say about this book that maybe no one else would care about, but I will hold my tong-um, fingers, because yeah, disclaimer, I am a proud employee of the company that published this book.

I used to write such intelligent reviews. *Sigh*...

This is book is cute and clever and any reader above the age range who wants a quick, feel-good read should seriously give this a go.

Better than One and Only Ivan and Crenshaw, Applegate's newest novel is narrated by a 216-ring red oak tree, named Red, where people leave their wishes. A new Muslim family moves into the neighborhood, and a young, shy girl named Samar is lonely, spending time each evening with the local wild animals who live in the tree or nearby. Samar wishes for a friend, and Red decides to get involved, especially after someone carves "Leave" on the tree. Just as things take a turn for the better, Red is threatened with being cut down. A nice book, with a message of tolerance and friendship and lovely illustrations too. Like Wonder, another book that is great for middle schoolers of all ages. ( )

Even though it’s a bit Disney-esk in the sense that things just worked out because they were constructed to, it had a very beautiful message that makes it worth a read. The short and occasionally disjointed chapters told from an unusual character did make for an interesting read, as well.

This was the ‘adult’ version, but it still read more like a children’s book. But, I don’t think there’s anything wrong or weird with adults enjoying books aimed at children. Just something to take into consideration when choosing your next read.

If you’re looking for something optimistic that is trying to mask itself as realistic, that is also a short and simple read, this is good. ( )

A short sweet melancholic tale for younger readers, very similar in style to Applegate's The One and Only Ivan. As with Ivan and another book, Crenshaw, there's a dark issue driving the tale ad great emotional heart. The ending is as happy as it must be given the target audience.

Highly recommended. ( )

Be Different to Trees: The talking oak / To the ancients spoke. / But any tree / Will talk to me. / What truths I know / I garnered so. / But those who want to talk and tell, / And those who will not listeners be, / Will never hear a syllable / From out the lips of any tree. - Mary Carolyn Davies (1924)
