I really enjoyed "Wishtree". This story is told in a tree's perspective and is very unique. It is about friendship and how you can work together to create a solution. Throughout the book, you get to know Red, the wishtree, and his buddy, Bongo the crow. Every year, on May 1st, people hang strips of cloth with wishes on them on the wishtree, in hopes that their wishes will come true. Everything is going well until Francesca, the lady that owns Red, wants to cut him down. Also, meanwhile, Red and his residents, (such as the skunks, the owls, and the raccoons), try to grant Samar's wish, a girl that recently moved in close by. Samar wants a friend, and Red is determined to get her one. This story got more and more interesting throughout the novel and I think it's a touching story.
