There is a treeline far to the North, a point on Earth at which the harshness of climate and scarcity of sunlight and precipitation prevent trees from growing any closer to the North Pole. Trees became smaller and sparser until, finally, there are no more. The lonely pine is the world’s northernmost tree. Through poetic prose and elegant illustrations, readers will travel to an inhospitable but beautiful realm, accompanying this stunted yet resilient tree as it experiences a year’s worth of Arctic sights, changes, and hardships. Facing extreme isolation, brutal cold, and threats from both man and animal, will the lonely pine live on?
Aaron Frisch is an editor and author who has written many nonfiction books for children and young adults. The Lonely Pine is his third Creative Editions picture book, after 2008’s Dark Fiddler: The Life and Legend of Nicolo Paganini and 2010’s A Night on the Range.
Etienne Delessert is a renowned Swiss-American artist and author who has been creating acclaimed children’s books for decades. Among his many picture book credits are I Hate to Read!, Hungry for Numbers, I Still Hate to Read!, Moon Theater, and Spartacus the Spider.
