Just imagine all the things she saw!

She lived on the same street all her life, but one day, people decided it would be best if she would go... Award-winning and best-selling author-illustrator Lydia Monks, illustrator of franchise What the Ladybird Heard, beautifully tells the tale of the life of one tree, from a young sapling to a mighty oak, becoming the beating heart of the community she lived in, right up until the day they cut her down. But there's hope, when one little girl takes one of her acorns to plant in the community garden.

"Lydia Monks’s beautiful illustrations celebrate the importance of caring for nature and for each other by making time to look out for one another. A powerful message inspired by Lydia Monks own experience" -Julia Eccleshare / LoveReading4Kids
