This is a short story, with pen and ink illustrations, about a small pine tree which was cut down as a Christmas tree. It was very small and not mature or filled out with fine branches and needles like the other trees being cut down for sale in the city.
It is a story of rejection by the public of the little, not fully grown tree and its eventual triumph. The book is child friendly and the illustrations lead each paragraph. The images are simple and a child can easily follow the story just by looking at the illustrations.

About the Author
I was born in 1946 and raised in central Illinois. During my youth, I was lucky to be able to visit my parent's families each summer in two very small towns and had, in my opinion, free range over what I did. It was a great and unique experience that allowed my imagination to grow wild. I started to write and paint at a very early age and have been lucky to be able to continue my creativity my entire life. To do so has caused many difficulties at times, but I wouldn't trade a second of it. Being creative and being able to express myself in paintings, sculptures, and writing has made me a better person. I recommend creative freedom to everyone. I have a BS degree in English, an MA in sculpture, and an MFA in ceramics.
