Product description

Review

"Katherine Applegate’s “Willodeen,” like most fairy tales, takes place in a world that is familiar in its generalities and supernatural in its particulars. Applegate’s most inventive contribution, however, comes after the main business of the story has been resolved[:] It takes empathy to cherish all living things, no matter how small or ugly. But it takes imagination to recognize both the agonies and the marvels of the future that awaits us." ―The New York Times Book Review

"Employing flawlessly simple, candid prose that belies deeper messages, Newbery Medalist Applegate again considers the complex relationship between humans and the natural world.
... Fiercely protective Willodeen is easy to champion, and her belief that “nature knows more than we do” is a message worth sharing." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"
Applegate’s gentle yet honest tale mixes magic with very real environmental messaging, both warning of human-caused harm and pointing to nature’s resilience and interconnectedness. ...Applegate empowers her young characters by not only granting them courage but also ensuring they earn the respect of their elders."―Booklist, starred review

"This accessible fantasy offers hope as well as a tender examination of people re-learning to work together to care for one another and the world around them." ―
The Horn Book Magazine

"An endearing fable that illuminates the importance of recognizing that all living things serve a purpose in our beautifully complex world and are worthy of care and dignity." ―
BookPage

"Applegate’s latest fantasy is a simple but beautiful story about humans’ relationship with the natural world. ...
A sweet fantasy about standing up for what you believe in."School Library Journal

"A beautifully written, morally bracing story that will leave its imprint on a reader of any age." The New York Times Book Review

"The simplicity of Newbery Medalist Applegate’s graceful novel contrasts powerfully with the prejudice it confronts. Narration comes from Red, an enormous red oak near an elementary school that also serves as a “wishtree” for the neighborhood―once a year, residents deposit wishes in Red’s branches and hollows....Red’s openhearted voice and generosity of spirit bring perspective gained over centuries of observation.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Applegate introduces another quiet, resilient protagonist who -- like the caged gorilla in
The One and Only Ivan and the working-class boy in Crenshaw -- speaks movingly to a noisy, fractious world. -- The Washington Post

"
The story’s wit and humor keep it from being heavy-handed, as do vivid portrayals of minor characters, especially Bongo, the sarcastic crow who is Red’s best friend. This is a book made for family sharing and discussion."--Raleigh News & Observer

"Timely, necessary, and brimming with heart."
-- Booklist, starred review

"Newbery Award–winning author Applegate meets high expectations in this tale told by a tree named Red, a red oak who is “two hundred and sixteen rings old.” ...
Another stunning effort from Applegate. This thoughtful read is a top choice for middle graders."--School Library Journal, starred review

"This swiftly moving yet contemplative read is great for early middle grade, reluctant or tentative readers, or precocious younger students.
A deceptively simple, tender tale in which respect, resilience, and hope triumph."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This gentle yet powerful book is suitable for all ages...and
its message remains more vital than ever."--BookPage

"Inspires hope for positive change. Perfect for a powerful classroom read, Wishtree is another winner for Applegate."--Voices of Youth Advocates, starred review
