Newbery Medalist and bestselling author of the Animorphs series and “The One and Only Ivan,” Katherine Applegate presents a funny, deep, and nuanced story from a completely unexpected point of view. Red is an oak tree who is many rings old and 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. When new family moves in, not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever.
