The Arborist tells the story of Charlie Roebecker, an eleven year old, small-town boy, who befriends a homeless evacuee from Hurricane Katrina. This Christmas novella elaborates on the theme of modern charity. How do we treat those in need? Why are we more charitable to the unnamed masses than to those desperate, shabby individuals we skulk past in the streets?
An inspiring holiday story that mixes a modern flavor with the traditional miracle tale.

Review:

A WARM, WONDERFUL STORY... The Arborist nicely elaborates on the theme of modern charity. How do we treat those in need? Why are we more charitable to the unnamed masses than to those desperate, shabby individuals we skulk past in the streets? This is a lovely holiday story that mixes a modern flavor with the traditional miracle tale. --2008 Ben Franklin Awards

AN UNDISCOVERED CHRISTMAS GEM... Written as a Christmas novella for middle grade readers and the young adult audience, the story of The Arborist is told by Charlie Roebecker, an eleven year old, small-town boy, who comes to the aid a homeless stranger. The book's novella length and eleven illustrations will appeal to younger readers as well. --USA Book News
