The Memory Tree

by Britta Teckentrup

Ref: 15388

Fox has lived a long and happy life- and now, finally, he is tired. He walks off to a clearing in the forest, lies down, falls asleep and never wakes up. One by one, Fox's woodland friends come to sit near him. And, one by one, they begin to share memories of their own special times with Fox. As they do so, a tiny seed buds into a sapling and then grows into a tree which climbs higher and higher, preserving their memories and lightening their hearts. Beautifully textured illustrations with all the tones of autumn by an internationally renowned artist. 'Always room for gentle stories like this portraying loss/memories of happy times. I really like it.' (Jayne, Primary Inclusion Manager, LL reviewer). 'The illustrations are beautiful and the text just right' (Eileen, Former Teacher, LL reviewer). Age 4-7 Paperback 26pp
