THE SAMPLING: The Lonely Little Tree

By Moya Kirby

Here’s an extract from a new New Zealand Christmas picture book, The Lonely Little Tree by Moya Kirby and illustrated by Terri Rose Baynton (Scholastic).

A lone and lonely tree overlooks the sea from the edge of a cliff where a forest once grew. Native birds gather, promising to cheer her up – they will make her their Christmas tree! With decorations of clematis blossoms, a spider’s silvery threads, feathers, berries and shells, the tree gets spruced up in time for Christmas night.
