With Red Katherine Applegate introduces another uiet resilient protagonist who like the caged gorilla in The One and Only Ivan speaks movingly to a noisy belligerent world Red is a caring oak who describes her life as a leafy shelter for generations of animals and as a wishtree for humans It s easy to suspend disbelief with her wise voice active mind and caring soul She knows well the habits of creatures in her world and treats readers to an insightful analysis though the habits of humans could be a bit trickier for her Two hundred and sixteen rings and I still haven t figured them out The pacing starts out slowly with early chapters focused almost entirely on the natural world but eventually we get to meet the human at the novel s center Samar a recent Muslim refugee is lonely and in need of a friend When a teenager carves a hateful message into Red s trunk she worries about its effect on Samar and her family Amidst all this the woman who owns the property threatens to cut down Red having forgotten the story of her ancestors and the beginning of all the wishes As much as she doesn t want to be chopped down Red still persists to help Samar So she and her best buddy a crow named Bongo begin to scheme about helping Samar make a connection to the community with poignant resultsApplegate often untangles thorny subjects for young readers In Wishtree she takes on anti Muslim bigotry handling the subject with a light touch so the treatment doesn t feel heavy There s sly humor and fun friendships involving the tree talking animals and humans mixed in with some meaty scientific information about trees and animals The story is sprinkled with strikingly beautiful language but never showy My favorite was the stars freckled the skyI adored Red And her story could teach us a lot about kindness friendship family heritage and so much If you find yourself standing near a particularly friendly looking tree listen up

Katherine Applegate s The One and Only Ivan is one of the finest books I ve ever read Not one of the finest children s book Not one of the finest illustrated book although the drawings are breathtaking No one of the finest books period I have harangued countless adults to please please give Ivan a chanceSo it pains me to say that Wishtree is no The One and Only Ivan Yes as is in Applegate s 2013 Newbery Medal winner Wishtree has an important message We should accept people even if they re different and get to know them before we judge them But whereas a gorilla as narrator worked so perfectly in The One and Only Ivan Red the oak tree as narrator seems twee And who is the audience for this book The message as portrayed in the book is probably too subtly expressed for most 8 to 9 year olds to follow but too heavy handed for adults even kid lit lovers like myselfIn the interest of full disclosure I received this book from NetGalley Macmillan Children s Publishing Group and Feiwel Friends in exchange for an honest review
