Claire Saxby; Joss Racklyeft


Can you see the forest on this misty-morning mountain? Can you see where the tree stands? It is the tallest in this forest of tall trees. This tree is older than those who find it, younger than the land it grows from. Between sapwood and heartwood, water rises and energy flows.

Listen to the leaves bustle. Smell the forest air. This is the world of the tree.

In the vein of Iceberg – marrying deep scientific research, lyrical language and stunning illustrations – multi-award-winning and highly acclaimed creators Claire Saxby and Jess Racklyeft return with a change in environment, from ocean to land. Their new collaboration follows a mighty tree, from the bottom of its roots up to the tips of its upper branches. Iceberg won the CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award and was a Notable Book in the Eve Pownall Awards.

‘Tree invites readers into the forest, asking them to close their eyes to imagine the sounds and breathe in the fresh air. Curious young minds aged 5+ will lap up this journey of discovery.’ Books+Publishing
