"Though I adore the written word, there is a magic in the ability of a wordless picture book to take our imaginations to a place of connection and meaning of our own interpretation. This beautiful tale is about a Bunny and a Tree who go on a fantastical journey of discovery and transformation as they search for a place to call home. There are obstacles along the way that they face together as they climb, sail, fly and solve together. The visual storytelling reminds us that everything in the world is connected and that together we can find our way." -Lisa
