A small boy lived in a city with no grass or trees. "Instead," he says, "we had roads, walls and lots of other ugly things." One day, the boy and his friend were amazed to discover a tiny sapling growing behind a low wall. They had never seen a tree and they imagined how majestic it would be someday. When they found out a condominium was to be built where their tree lived, the boys knew they had to dig it up and replant it. They had to save the last tree. A poignant story about hope and the importance of nature.

Unexpectedly powerful and moving for a children's book. Makes you ache with the desire to see the beautiful green spaces of this world preserved and cherished. Reminiscent of Wall-E, and a great start to a conversation with young ones about climate change and protecting the environment.
