Sapling Green is a gentle, quiet girl with a secret she is scared to show the world. Wynn Farthing is funny and noisy, and the best at climbing high into the branches of the old schoolyard tree. One terrible day, after a storm, the gardener says the tree has to come down. Can Sapling use her secret to save the day?

This beautifully illustrated, heart-warming and relatable story is an important reminder that our differences are our strengths, and we should always accept each other for who we are.
