Description

Winner at the 2019 Independent Press Awards. A beautiful story, printed on stone paper, about the importance, care, and preservation of trees, and the small steps we can all take to care for the planet.

One night, the trees in the forest decided it’s time to uproot and leave. They yanked out their roots and dragged themselves off across the fields. On his way to school, Goran soon realized what is happening… All the trees had disappeared and holes could be seen where they used to be. Bewildered, he rushed home to find if the tree in his garden had vanished as well. He loved that tree, it used to be his friend during springtime when he swung from his branches, and also in summer when its leaves protected him from the hot sun. Understanding the consequences this would have for animals, humans, and the environment, he set off to counteract the damage that had already been done.

Ganador del premio Independent Press Award en 2019. Una hermosa historia, impresa en papel de piedra, que nos recuerda la importancia de los árboles y de su conservación y nos anima a cuidar el planeta.

Una noche, los árboles del bosque decidieron que era hora de arrancar de raíz y marcharse. Arrancaron sus raíces y se arrastraron por los campos. De camino a la escuela, Goran pronto se dio cuenta de lo que estaba pasando… Todos los árboles habían desaparecido dejando grandes agujeros allí donde solían estar. Desconcertado,  Goran corrió a casa para ver si el árbol de su jardín también se había marchado. Amaba ese árbol, solía ser su amigo durante la primavera cuando se colgaba de sus ramas, y también en verano cuando sus hojas lo protegían del calor del sol. Cuando comprendió realmente las consecuencias que este desastre conllevaría para los animales, los seres humanos y el medio ambiente, no dudó ni un segundo y se puso en marcha para contrarrestar el daño que ya se había hecho.
