“Most moving commentary I’ve read on the anti-immigration movement without mentioning bans or walls or presidents.” –New York Times


Written by Katherine Applegate
Published by Feiwel & Friends

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 a crow named 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 experience as a wishtree is more important than ever. Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, this is Katherine Applegate at her very best writing from the heart, and from a completely unexpected point of view.
