A red oak tree and a crow help their human neighbors work out differences, in this beautiful, nuanced novel from Newbery Medalist and New York Times bestselling author Katherine Applegate.

Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories . . .

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.
