Younger readers will love the magical library setting in this story by Polly Ho-Yen

Polly Ho-Yen is one of our favourite middle grade authors. We knew we were going to love this, but the magical library setting, relatable lead character and delightful illustrations really blew us away!


Nature-loving Timi is unsettled by the arrival of a new sibling and turns to tending a tree growing in his local library. But there is something magical about the tree and it is growing FAST… and the library is going to close. Can Timi save the library and his tree, and maybe bring his community closer together along the way?

Polly Ho-Yen was a primary school teacher in London. She now lives in Bristol with her husband and daughter and is the author of several books for children, including Boy in the Tower.
