A Forest of Stories: Magical Tree Tales from Around the World, retold by Rina Singh, illus. by Helen Cann, travels the world with its stories about trees, from the Chinese tale ""The Cypress Tree,"" about a peddler who buys the shade of a tree, to the Nigerian ""The Palm Tree,"" about a magician's son who commands a date palm tree to pull up its roots and walk. Each story is prefaced with facts about the tree, and an introduction by Singh celebrates the benefits trees provide and the need for people to conserve and respect them. (Sept.)
