Quite an intriguing book, very sad and lonely tone. The Tanglewood tree was all alone on an island, no one stopped until one day a bird was blown ashore. After time the bird left, leaving the tree even lonelier until one day she returned with a huge flock. In some ways the poignancy of this book reminds me of Shel Stevenson’s The Giving Tree, without the selfishness of the second character. Illustrations are beautiful. Recommended.
