Big Tree

April 04, 2023 | Scholastic International
| Literature: Brian Selznick
The fate of all life on Earth may depend on the bravery of two little sibling seeds, Louise and Merwin, as they try to save the world while searching for a safe place to grow. But when a fire forces them to leave their mama tree prematurely, they find themselves catapulted into the unknown, far from home. Alone and unprepared, they must use their wits and imagination to navigate a dangerous world - filled with dinosaurs, meteors, and volcanoes - and the fear of never finding a safe place to grow up. In the spirit of such timeless classics as Charlotte's Web, The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, Big Tree takes readers on a mesmerizing journey from the prehistoric age to present day. Filled with mystery and danger, humor, heart, and hope, Big Tree is a trailblazing tale that will captivate readers ages seven and up. The book will be printed on paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the global standard-setter for responsible forest management.

With Big Tree, Brian Selznick has created a profound and lovely book. His quiet message – that even the smallest among us can do something to save the world, and that we’re all connected – is just what’s needed for the moment in which we find ourselves. (Meryl Streep)
