Join the wonderful illustrator/ writer Emily Haworth-Booth for an event to celebrate her latest book 'The Last Tree' on Tuesday 18th February at 2pm. Join us for stories, craft and book signing.
Emily wrote and illustrated the phenomenally successful The King Who Banned the Dark. We were lucky enough to host an event for her last book and she kindly painted our shop window. Her latest book is about community and our relationship with the environment and the natural world. Once upon a time a group of friends were seeking a place to call home. The desert was too hot, the valley was too wet and the mountain was too windy.
Then they found the forest. It was perfect. The leaves gave shelter from the sun and rain, and a gentle breeze wound through the branches.
But the friends soon wanted to build shelters. The shelters became houses, then the houses got bigger. All too soon they wanted to control the environment and built a huge wooden wall around the community.
As they cut down the trees, the forest becomes thinner, until there is just one last tree standing. It is down to the children to find a solution.'
So, book a space to join us- the ticket price is redeemable at the event against any book purchase made.
