An environmental fairytale for our times, for adults and children.

"It was a sheer joy to be able to read this. It is mysterious and magical and true. Children and those who read it to them will love it and long remember it. The illustrations are woven wonderfully around the words; the trees are with you, telling it, writing it. Once read we will know never to take trees or leaves for granted again. A powerful symphony of a story that will resonate for every reader. We hear the wind in the trees on every page. We only have to listen" Michael Morpugo, author of War Horse and Private Peaceful

Nigerian writer, essayist, playwright and poet Ben Okri's books include TheFamished Road and Astonishing the Gods.
