The Last Tree by Ingrid Chabbert

Stunning artwork. and a wonderful premise; but I'm just not feeling very enthusiastic.

The Last Tree In a world where there are no more trees or grass, two little boys discover a little sapling. When they find out that some land developers are doing to bulldoze it to make a new building, they dig it up and replant it somewhere else. They revisit it a few years later, and the sapling has grown into a tree. The end.

The book is beautifully illustrated, but it is very dark and pessimistic for a storybook aimed at the younger age bracket. I wouldn't read it aloud to any kids I know.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
