"Voake, whose charming drawings have a touch of Edward Ardizzone about them, has written a marvellous book about how to grow, measure and identify trees" (Kate Kellaway Observer)
"The watercolour illustrations are mini works of art . . . Pure delight, we loved it! Highly recommended!" (Hot Brands Cool Places)
"It would make an excellent gift for a child (or an incompletely educated adult like me) and is a must-have resource for all environmentally aware schools" (School Librarian)
"An attractively illustrated introduction to this subject, combining instructions and ideas for getting to know trees better, in which watercolour illustrations capture the form and beauty of each variety. The trees are well chosen - even the most urban of children won't have to look far to find a tree that they can look up at." (Junior Education Plus)
