The memory tree
In the library this book immediately caught my eye. I guess because of the title 'Een boom vol herinneringen' (The memory tree). I was not dissappointed. What an amazing book.
'Fox has lived a long and happy life in the forest. One day, he lies down in his favourite clearing, takes a deep breath, and falls asleep for ever. Before long, Fox's friends begin to gather in the clearing. One by one, they tell stories of the special moments that they shared with Fox. And, as they share their memories, a tree begins to grow, becoming bigger and stronger, sheltering and protecting all the animals in the forest, just as Fox did when he was alive.'
