THE LAST TREE is a story about a beautiful old eucalyptus tree that grew tall and strong over many years. It was the centre of life in the forest and provided food and shelter for many forest dwellers. But what happens when the tree is threatened as the surrounding forest slowly disappears?
THE LAST TREE is a companion volume to PRAYER FOR THE ANIMAL, the first picture book Mark Wilson both wrote and illustrated for Lothian.
