Better than One and Only Ivan and Crenshaw, Applegate's newest novel is narrated by a 216-ring red oak tree, named Red, where people leave their wishes. A new Muslim family moves into the neighborhood, and a young, shy girl named Samar is lonely, spending time each evening with the local wild animals who live in the tree or nearby. Samar wishes for a friend, and Red decides to get involved, especially after someone carves "Leave" on the tree. Just as things take a turn for the better, Red is threatened with being cut down. A nice book, with a message of tolerance and friendship and lovely illustrations too. Like Wonder, another book that is great for middle schoolers of all ages. ( )

Even though it’s a bit Disney-esk in the sense that things just worked out because they were constructed to, it had a very beautiful message that makes it worth a read. The short and occasionally disjointed chapters told from an unusual character did make for an interesting read, as well.

This was the ‘adult’ version, but it still read more like a children’s book. But, I don’t think there’s anything wrong or weird with adults enjoying books aimed at children. Just something to take into consideration when choosing your next read.

If you’re looking for something optimistic that is trying to mask itself as realistic, that is also a short and simple read, this is good. ( )

A short sweet melancholic tale for younger readers, very similar in style to Applegate's The One and Only Ivan. As with Ivan and another book, Crenshaw, there's a dark issue driving the tale ad great emotional heart. The ending is as happy as it must be given the target audience.

Highly recommended. ( )

Samar and Stephen are neighbors, but not friends. When a boy carves the word LEAVE into a red oak tree between their yards (in fact, it's the tree - Red - who serves as the story's narrator), Samar's Muslim family considers doing just that. As Red schemes with her crow friend Bongo to bring Samar and Stephen together, Wishing Day approaches, and the tree's owner, Francesca, considers cutting Red down. At last, Red takes action, breaking the taboo against speaking to humans, and tells Samar and Stephen the story of the original Wishing Day, and its important role in Francesca's family's history. After this bonding experience, Stephen helps organize an effort at school: every student writes a single word on an index card, and brings it to the tree on Wishing Day: STAY.

The extraordinary kindness contained in this single word is the heart of the book. And although prejudice still exists, Samar and Stephen have their friendship; Samar's family decides to stay; and Francesca decides not to cut Red down. ( )

Be Different to Trees: The talking oak / To the ancients spoke. / But any tree / Will talk to me. / What truths I know / I garnered so. / But those who want to talk and tell, / And those who will not listeners be, / Will never hear a syllable / From out the lips of any tree. - Mary Carolyn Davies (1924)
