Book 1: Do You Speak Tree?

What makes the series unique is that each story is nearly wordless.


In the first book, Oakie the oak tree goes on an adventure to find someone who will speak up for the forest. But the problem is that Oakie speaks Tree, a fun visual language that no one else understands.

That all changes when Oakie meets Art, an imaginative elementary school student with a crayon in hand and a plan in mind to save the day.
