Three Tall Trees

  Author:   David Weale  
  Artist :   Dale McNevin    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

Narrated by Enigma the Crow, this charming picture book for children aged four to seven, is a delightful rhyming fable that tells the story of three tall trees. Living in close proximity in the woods, the ancient trees “bump and collide constantly.” Jacob claims that his roots are the deepest. Paul brags that his branches are wider, while Elijah Ali insists that his sap is the purest of all. There is “war in the forest” until Enigma observes a basic truth: the trees aren’t three trees at all. They’re part of the very same tree. With its gentle humour and heartfelt message about the connectedness of all living things, Three Tall Trees is certain to captivate young readers.

David Weale has been collecting the stories and sayings of Prince Edward Islanders most of his adult life, and reflecting them back in his writing and storytelling. And, despite all the superfluous layering of commercial wrapping, he still can find the gift of Christmas.

Dale McNevin's illustrations are found in many Acorn Press titles including A Long Way from the Road, An Island Christmas Reader, And My Name Is . . . Stories From the Quilt, Everything That Shines, Tales from Willowshade Farm, The True Meaning of Crumbfest, and Crosby and Me. She has written and illustrated Treasures to Find, which was sponsored by the P.E.I. Literacy Alliance. Her recent book Prince Edward Island ABC is sure to be an Island classic.
