A funny, deep and warm story about being different and tolerant, told from a surprising perspective.
The trees may not know how to joke, but they can tell stories without a doubt. This is told by a two-hundred-year-old oak tree. Its name is Oak and it is a tree of wishes - every year people decorate it with scraps of paper, rags, and sometimes even socks. Each such ornament is someone's dream.
Together with his friend the crow Bongo and other animals that live in its hollows and branches, the Oak watches over the area. It might seem that nothing will surprise him anymore. But one day, a family from abroad moves into one of the houses on his street. Not everyone greets her kindly. Soon something happens that will make Oak break the most important rule of all plants and animals and ... speak to people.
The Wish Tree was included in the New York Times and Amazon bestseller lists (in the Children's Books on Tolerance category), has already been published in more than 20 languages and has received rave reviews in leading magazines around the world.

A fast-paced, wise and sensitive story in which respect, courage and hope win. "Kirkus Reviews"
