I would read more books by this author.

This book made me think more about friendship.

This book really reminded me about how people aren’t always kind and that you have to be a good friend, especially to the people that need it the most. Some may find this story is relatable. Some may find this story a way to reflect. But, no matter how you feel about the book, it will always be a touching, unforgettable read.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!😁😁😁

This book made me think more about friendship.

Wishtree is happy and sad at the same time... It's sappy! Get it, because red is a tree. OK enough with my corny jokes. I have to give it to Katherine she really let the book absorb the emotion! In the long run, this is one of the best books I read! Bongo is my favorite charac…. Oops can't spoil I guess you'll have to read it for yourself, trust me you'll like it if you spent this much time reading the review I wrote, can't wait to read more! PEACE OUT!

amazing!!!

Katherine Applegate is one of my favorite authors. When I found the book "Wishtree" I was very excited. Know it's one of my favorite books. This book is very unique because I haven't read a book with the main character of a tree.

I LOVE THIS BOOK

This book made me think more about friendship.

This book was one of the books on my school's optional reading list/challenge thing, and it was one of my favorites. I'm super excited that it's available here, and I recommend it to everyone! However, I do want to clarify something. While in the book description above, it says that the tree is a "he", Red actually isn't a "he" or a "she". Just thought I'd clear that up! Enjoy!

Great! Definitely worth the read!

I would read more books by this author.

This was a awesome book! My fourth grade teacher read this book to my class, and I was always looking forward to when she would read more. I love the books by Katherine Applegate, and this book is no exception. I highly recommend this book to everyone (whether or not they are willing to read it).

Great book!!

Katherine Applegate
Author of Wishtree


Katherine Applegate can tell you that being a writer is the best job on the planet. If you think that a book narrated by a tree is an unusual project, you will be surprised to learn that she won the 2013 Newbery Medal, a very important award, for her book The One and Only Ivan, which is written from the viewpoint of a gorilla living in a glass cage in a shopping mall. She has one husband, two children, and three pets, and lives in northern California.
