Henry is a small sapling who grows into a big strong tree under the protection of an even bigger and stronger tree. But then comes the longest night with drenching waters and howling winds, and the biggest and strongest tree falls. Henry is alone and his heart is hollow, until he hears the small voice of a new sapling among his roots. This is an evocative story about cycles and generations, with sumptuous illustrations that add depth and meaning to a timeless theme. The book's jacket folds out to be an impressive poster showcasing Matt Ottley's artwork.
