2022 CBCA Shortlist. Blackwood weaves the trees into shapes of animals that befriend the lonely boy, animals that comfort him in his solitary life. And readers will all breathe a sigh of relief: he is not alone. But another twist appears as the block of land is sold and each tree marked with a cross, ready to be cut down.
