Holiday traditions come in all shapes and sizes in this fun adventure following a little sapling on a journey to become an amazing Christmas tree.

Piney the Pine Tree has only ever wanted to be one thing: a special Christmas tree for a little girl named Georgie who planted him as a seed on her Grandpa Sid’s Christmas tree farm. Finally, the winter arrives when Piney is ready to make his dream come true, but he is accidentally loaded onto a truck and whisked away from the tree farm! Thus begins Piney’s adventure to find Georgie’s house and to become her Christmas tree.

Along with Georgie’s dog, Jackster, Piney travels from a recycling truck to a bus to a pine forest to a small village. In the end, Piney realizes that although he longed to be a Christmas tree, there may be something even better for him. Piney’s unexpected journey is filled with love, hope, and inspiration. Based on the Emmy® nominated special Piney: The Lonesome Pine, this book is sure to become your family’s new holiday tradition to read each year.

  • “A heartwarming purchase for all libraries. This talking evergreen—with his kindness, optimism, and energy—is sure to be a hit with students around the holidays.”
