Waterstones Says

From an ancient olive tree remembering Odysseus to a tiny sapling carried by a refugee, this collection of poems and stories from the revered author of War Horse and Running Wild is a thoughtful and imaginative love letter to the enduring power of trees and forests.

This extraordinary collection of poems and stories is based on Michael Morpurgo's passion for trees and what they mean to animals, humanity and the world around us. Inspired by the poem by Ted Hughes which gives this book its title, by the woods around his home, and by the mighty forests that support our life on Earth, this book is a celebration, and Michael's love letter to trees.

There are stories from an ancient olive remembering Odysseus and Penelope, and from a eucalyptus that gave shelter to a koala; from a piece of driftwood that was made into a chair, and from a tiny sapling carried by a refugee as a reminder of home - these are poems and stories that will amuse, move and energise families and readers of all ages to appreciate the beauty and wonder of trees.

Yuval Zommer's beautiful, detailed illustrations bring the natural world to life, and make My Heart was a Tree a book to pore over for hours and hours, discovering something new each time.
