Waterstones Says

Told with great subtlety and power, Monks' gorgeous story of a venerable tree's hundred-year life on the same street is a heartwarming picture book to treasure forever.

Adoette lived to be 100 years old. Just imagine all the things she saw! She lived on the same street all her life, but one day, people decided it would be best if she would go...

Award-winning and best-selling author-illustrator Lydia Monks, illustrator of the What the Ladybird Heard franchise, beautifully tells the tale of the life of one tree, from a young sapling to a mighty oak, becoming the beating heart of the community she lived in, right up until the day they cut her down. But there's hope, when one little girl takes one of her acorns to plant in the community garden.
