A magical picture book for Christmas, written in perfect,  heartfelt rhyme by Julia Donaldson, bestselling creator of Zog and Superworm. Deep in a snowy wood stands a little pine tree with a special  destiny: when it grows up, it's going to be the famous  Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square! This is the perfect picture book to snuggle up with and share  at Christmas. Gorgeous, atmospheric illustrations whisk you from  frozen forests to the sparkling city square in a beautiful, moving  story of festivity and hope. This gorgeously illustrated hardback book has a gold-foiled dust  jacket, making it the perfect Christmas gift for young children  Julia Donaldson's perfect rhyme is a joy to read aloud  - this is a classic to treasure for generations.  Victoria Sandoy's exquisite, atmospheric illustrations  are full of gorgeous details to point out and share. A paragraph on the final page of the book explains the true story  behind the tree. The Christmas Pine is based on a true story. It celebrates  a special tradition that stretches back over seventy years.  Every year, the Mayor of Oslo in Norway presents the British people  with a spectacular Christmas tree. The tree is a symbol of peace  and friendship, and a thank you for the UK's support during  World War II. Each year, the UK Poetry Society asks a poet to write a poem to  welcome the tree. Julia Donaldson originally wrote The Christmas  Pine to celebrate the 2020 Christmas tree. The poem was  performed by London schoolchildren, and displayed in Trafalgar  Square. Julia Donaldson is the author of many of the best-loved children's  books ever written. She has been awarded a CBE for services to  literature, and is the most celebrated children's writer in  Britain today.
