What's so special about a 250-year-old tree?
An old tree that Bea Garcia and her friend Judith Einstein named Emily.
A big tree that Bert climbed.
A tree full of acorns that Bert threw at everybody.
A tree that was seen by Mrs. Winkleblinker, the President of the School Board.
Bea and Einstein knew they had to save Emily. But they needed help.
It's amazing what kids can do using science and magic, art and teamwork.
"A funny and timely primer for budding activists." starred review, Kirkus Reviews
"Zemke clearly shows how art, self-expression, and humor can be solid allies when life doesn’t go as planned." Publishers Weekly “Readers will find inspiration to write, draw, explore, and imagine.” Kirkus Reviews "Zemke’s child-friendly illustrations have the profound simplicity of, say, James Thurber or Shel Silverstein." David Herrie, Bookolage
