This new adventure with Red Knit Cap Girl and her friends uses simple prose and radiant illustrations to shine a light on the joy of reading and the importance of working together.

One day Red Knit Cap Girl and her friends discover a hollow tree in the middle of the forest. What can be done with one ordinary tree? 'I will keep my book in this nook so everyone can read it,' Red Knit Cap Girl says.

But the tree isn't only for books. Little by little, one by one, the animals share their unique gifts and turn the ordinary tree into a special spot for everyone to enjoy!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A gentle Zen-like parable, with visual and narrative intrigue."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"An apt choice for bedtime reading, this story affirms the necessity of turning off the light and noise of our busy world to truly recognize the everyday marvels around us."-- "School Library Journal"
"Soothingly familiar....The text is simple and thoughtful, almost meditative, but it's the charming artwork that runs away with the show."-- "Booklist"
"Stoop's dreamy, saturated illustrations, painted on plywood, create a roomy wonderland that welcomes any child's curiosity and sense of adventure."-- "The New York Times Book Review"
* "Stoop's first picture book...[is] a successful ensemble piece, gorgeously illustrated, in which each character has a part to play."-- "Publishers Weekly," starred review
"Children will delight in pointing out the many little humorous touches, while parents and librarians will take a quiet and glorious pleasure in sharing a story about books and reading. There is nary a beep to be heard or a flashing to be seen in this loving ode to the printed page, reading and sharing stories." ""Kirkus"""
"This combines a bundle of sweet elements-soft, inviting artwork; a simple yet attention holding tale; and a strong message. The adorable Red Knit Cap Girl, with her readily identifiable outfit and her pinpoint eyes, is a charmer." ""Booklist"""
