The Tree

Leave a comment


Another factual entry: The Tree, created by Pascale de Bourgoing & Gallimard Jeunesse publishers, illustrated by Christian Broutin, translated by Sarah Matthews (Moonlight, 1990). This is a crisply illustrated book with a gimmick of transparent overlays partly hiding the pictures underneath. The final page brings us full circle: “Wood shavings, crushed and squeezed together, made wood pulp. Wood pulp makes paper. With that paper, you can make a book … about trees!”
