Product Details


British author/illustrator Beedie’s digitally created, rustic-styled illustrations extend the silly, simple story nicely with their warm, forest-y hues. A good addition to the growing shelf of facial-hair fables; themes of conservation and friendship are a plus.
—Kirkus Reviews

An easygoing storytelling style, ample visual humor, and the amusingly improbable premise make Beedle’s environmental message go down easy.
—Publishers Weekly

The big, blocky illustrations close with a series of views of the lumberjack and his animal friends sitting protectively around a small tree through multiple seasons until it (and a new beard) grows—and finally gathering beneath its shade to read Jean Giono’s classic The Man Who Planted Trees. Nourishing fare for budding eco-activists.
—Booklist Online

A funny read-aloud with a subtle conservational message.
—School Library Journal
