An incredible immersive novel in words and pictures by

Brian Selznick, a love letter to the natural world.

Big Tree follows two tiny sycamore seeds, Louise and

Merwin, as they try to save the world while searching for a safe

place to grow.

In the spirit of such timeless classics as Charlotte's Web, The

Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, Big Tree is a fast-paced

epic adventure that takes readers on a mesmerizing journey

from the prehistoric age to present day. It is filled with mystery

and danger, humour, heart, and hope, and will captivate readers

ages seven and up.

Selznick creates a vivid fantastical world rooted in science,

a cast of unforgettable original characters, and an exquisite escapade

that takes readers on a mesmerising journey from prehistory

through the meteoric transformation of Earth to present day.

Big Tree is a tour de force from an ingenious creator at the

top of his creative form.

This story began as an original idea from film legend Steven

Spielberg, and his production company has the film rights.

A page-turning adventure with wonderful characters, about how

even the smallest can make an impact and save our world

Brian's first book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, was

the winner of the esteemed Caldecott Medal, the

first novel to do so, as the Caldecott Medal is for picture books

& made into a feature length film, HUGO, directed by Martin

Scorsese and starring Jude Law
