Simply written, but powerful and unforgettable, The Man Who Planted Treesis a parable for modern times. In the foothills of the French Alps the narrator meets a shepherd who has quietly taken on the task of planting one hundred acorns a day in an effort to reforest his desolate region. Not even two world wars can keep the shepherd from continuing his solitary work. Gradually, this gentle, persistent man's work comes to fruition: the region is transformed; life and hope return; the world is renewed.

Review:

One of those amazing stories that is even more relevant now than before because we are screaming to find a way of bringing new life to our planet. This is the most compelling book I know and maybe the most important. Wish I'd written it myself. Very cross about that --Michael Morpurgo, The Guardian

This is a lovely, poignant little book by one of the most distinguished 20th-century French writers. --Sunday Times

Michael McCurdy's gentle woodcuts enhance this haunting little 1950s tale . . . a version of pastoral, regenerating a whole landscape and community. --Observer

You read it in half an hour and afterwards you have a story with you that you feel better for knowing --Rachel Joyce, Summer Reading, Sunday Express
