"Just a minute."
"The tree. I know how it feels."
Young Charlie and the tree in his garden are both shocked to find they can communicate with each other. Since it's clear that they are the only ones who can do this, they make a pact of secrecy.
The most delightful story unfolds, in the most ordinary of surroundings. I read this book to my mum when she was dying in hospital, and although often only semi-conscious or semi-lucid, she wanted me to read this book and finish it!
This book has depths of insights and wisdom, couched in a story for children of all ages.
I appreciated the new perspective of a tree. I can't recall ever reading something from a tree's point of view without it being very human-esque. From the beginning of the book I found the consciousness of a tree to be convincing. It was a pleasant idea and easy to grasp. The connection between child and tree was a touch of necessary magic which allowed the reader to get into the mind of the tree (or perhaps, it's better described as the tree being in the mind of a human). This book makes references to oil wars and global warming, concepts which most people are familiar with. Salote herself says she wrote this book 'because of human ego-driven planet wrecking. I wanted to give a voice to the innocent bystanders: the plants and animals'. Well, I think she succeeded marvellously.
Salote uses language that a child could understand, apart from a few words that they may need a dictionary or Google to look up the definition for, and this makes the book accessible. With modern society the way it is, it seems increasingly important to encourage younger generations to become aware of the impact their behaviour has on a wider scale.Read more ›
