The gentle genius of trees.

What could we clever humans ever learn from trees? Take an unashamedly anthropomorphic wander through the woods to learn a few life lessons from our foliaged friends. The Gentle Genius of Trees is a small forest of facts exploring the brilliance of trees, from photosynthesis, to symbiosis and the wood-wide web.

The Gentle Genius of Trees is published in Australia by Scholastic Australia (April 2021), in Germany by Baumhaus Verlag, in Korea by EumBooks, in the Netherlands by Condor, in France by 123 Soleil, in Norway by Solum Bokvennen, and in the USA by Penguin Random House.

The Gentle Genius of Trees was listed as a Notable Book by the Children’s Book Council of Australia in 2022.
