Product Description

Amazon Review

Mary Clare Smith's illustration of one of e e cummings' best-loved poems will bring the magic and spirit of Christmas into every home in which it is read. Core colours of snow white, pine green and regal purple give the illustrations unity as they develop into more colourful celebrations once the Little Tree is taken out of the forest, decorated and put on show for everyone to see.

The text, sensitive to young people's fears of change and attention, gives the trees feelings every child will be able to identify with:

i will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly

i will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and tight
just as your mother would,
only don't be afraid

while gold foil stars add that little extra festive sparkle. Clear, large type makes this book easy for young readers to enjoy, and the colourful pictures will amuse little ones while parents read aloud. Joyful, bright and inspiring, Little Tree is a lovely addition to any Christmas stocking. (Ages 4 and up.) --Lucie Naylor

From the Back Cover

'e. e. cummings' is famous for his special use of space and type in his work and 'Little Tree' is one of his best-loved poems.

In this new picture book version, Mary Claire Smith’s unique illustrations make a very loving and personal interpretation of a poem that touches us all.
