Book Trailer Premiere: wishtree by Katherine Applegate

Hello, Katherine! I'm thrilled you dropped by to share wishtree’s book trailer and to finish my sentences. I love wishtree with my whole heart. It is the book the world needs right now. 

Katherine Applegate: John, thank you so much for inviting me to join you here today. I’m really thrilled to be able to chat with you about wishtree. 



wishtree’s book trailer makes me sniffle every time I see it. (Very happy tears.)

Red thinks that humans are awfully tough to figure out. 

I can’t disagree.



Charles Santoso’s illustrations are simply perfect. There’s a spread with all of the animal characters—baby skunks and curious kittens and tiny opossums and more—that readers are going to adore. 

wishtree is for newcomers and welcomers. Which means, I like to think, most of us. Maybe even, someday, all of us.

School libraries are non-negotiable. Kinda like air and water and fish sticks in the cafeteria.


Mr. Schu, you should have asked me if trees can talk. But I suspect you didn’t because you already know the answer: Of course they can.

That is, if you know how to listen. 



Look for wishtree on September 26.
