The author-illustrator team that produced the best-selling Christmas story The True Meaning of Crumbfest is back with a charming new picture book for children aged four to seven. Narrated by Enigma the Crow, this delightful rhyming fable tells of three trees that come to blows one day. Living in close proximity in the woods, the ancient trees, whose names are Jacob, Paul, and Elijah Ali, "bump and collide constantly" and can't resist squabbling. Jacob claims that his roots are the deepest. Paul brags that his branches are wider, while Elijah Ali insists that his sap is the purest of all. There is "war in the forest" until the wise-eyed Enigma observes a truth from the air: the trees aren't three trees at all but part of the same tree. They share a common root. With its gentle humour and heartfelt message about the connectedness of all living things, Three Tall Trees is certain to captivate young readers.
