The Girl Who Talked To Trees: Win a beautiful story about the things we can learn from nature

Natasha Farrant and Lydia Corry's new book interlinks magical stories with the unique friendship between an ancient tree and the girl who comes to listen.

What can we learn from trees? For Olive, whose best friend is a centuries-old oak tree, there is comfort to be found in its whispering branches and sturdy roots. But Olive's friend is in terrible danger.

Olive promises to listen to the trees sharing their stories for all time - from beautiful Persian gardens to underwater forests, high branches to deep roots, gentle apple trees to vengeful box trees. And what she learns from her new friends will stay with her forever.

Stunning colour illustrations complement the seven vividly imagined stories in this lovely book, which contains a strong message about the importance of conservation and wildlife and lots of fascinating facts about trees and other plants. Readers will never look at a tree in the same way again.
