The Red Tree
Author: Shaun Tan
Illustrator: Julie Morstad
This is a book filled with visual metaphors – as heartaches take on monstrous forms, a child’s uncertainties transformed into strange and frightening creatures. Yet it is also a book about a glimmering red – hopeful tiny seeds that can bloom into a huge crimson tree amidst dark, flying, haunted things that go bump in the night.
