The relationship between a boy and an old tree is the perfect scenario for the author of this text, Claude Levert, to tell the story of a friendship filled with kindness and open-heartedness. Autumn�s arrival and the inevitable old oak�s leaf dropping make the little boy wonder if the tree is dying. Everything he does won�t be enough, but will be of great worth. With spring�s arrival, the tree will flourish again.
The book first appeared on the spring of 1979 published by Mi��n. Now, it has become a classic thanks to the sober illustrations by Carm� Sole.
