Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . .

Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree"―people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with her crow friend Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this "wishtree" watches over the neighborhood.

You might say Red has seen it all. Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever.

Funny, deep, warm, and nuanced, Wishtree is Newbery Medalist and New York Times–bestselling author Katherine Applegate at her very best―writing from the heart, and from a completely unexpected point of view.

    Wish Tree By Katherine Applegate Published :September 26,2017 Wish Tree is by the author of the One and only Ivan, Crenshaw, etc. Wish Tree is a book about the meaning of friendship and is also is a great example of a different point of view. People make wishes every year, in Wish Tree you will learn how people use a great red oak tree to show wishes and thoughts. I recommend this book to about 3-7 grade. In my opinion I love fiction and I think that this will work for anyone who loves fiction or whom ever will give this book a chance. I love this book specifically because I love fiction, I also like the way Katherine Applegate used a different and unusual point of view that you don’t see often. Have a great time reading this book if you can.
