Internationally acclaimed author, illustrator and naturalist Jan Thornhill has created a dramatic and unique picture book that brings to life the wondrous tale of one tree's survival through two hundred years of nature's blessings and scourges.
On a crisp, fall morning a little maple key spins through the air and settles on the life-giving ruins of an ancient tree. So begins the story of a single maple tree and the creatures it nourishes and shelters.
The intricacies of forest ecology and the importance of every link in the chain are highlighted in both the informative narrative and in the exquisitely detailed illustrations. Thornhill's brilliant drawings, each one alive with color and filled with a multitude of forest animals, will delight kids. From the tiniest cricket to the magnificence of a lighting storm, she captures them all.
Jan Thornhill's books have twice been shortlisted for the Governor General's Award, Canada's most prestigious children's book prize. Wildlife 1 2 3 was awarded the UNICEF Ezra Jack Keats Award. A Tree in a Forest won the Canadian Children's Literature Roundtables Information Book Award. Crow and Fox was chosen a White Raven Book by UNESCO International Children's Library in Munich. When she isn't working on a children's book, Jan spends her time writing adult fiction, bird watching, and gardening.
