Imagine a world without trees. A world that is in many ways like our world, but where magnificent canopies, tree climbing and leaves rustling in the breeze are now only distant memories.

Until a young girl comes along, a girl who is brave and spirited and willing to follow where her imagination takes her. Through Olive’s adventures in the world of trees we are reminded of nature’s extraordinary power and beauty, and her actions ultimately sow the seeds of new life in her own world.

From the mind and pen of bestselling author Luke Adam Hawker, The Last Tree is a powerful evocation of the fragility of our natural world and a magnificent celebration of its beauty.

Review by Stacey

The Last Tree is a beautiful, thought-provoking book that had me staring at the pages long after I had read the words. Now you might not think that black-and-white illustrations could hold you captive but these certainly do.

The book features a young girl, Olive, who adores books and how each read is different, and how they can capture her imagination and take her on great adventures. In real life, Olive was also about to go on her own adventure. She was off to The Tree Museum, where the story of trees was told as they had died out years ago.

The Last Tree certainly gives you food for thought and makes you appreciate the world around you. It is touching, and heart-warming, and I think it may be respected more by adults than children who might not quite get the moral of the story.

The text on each page is just a few lines long and the illustrations vary in size, however, both are very moving. The story fills you with hope and gives you an uplifting feeling by the end. I had great pleasure reading this book and it will stay with me for a long time.
