Celebritrees: Historic & Famous Trees of the World by Margie Preus and illustrated by Rebecca Gibbon

                                         Reviewed by Miss Dewey at Orenda

Four paw prints.  Have you ever wondered where the tallest tree lives, or the oldest, or the widest?  Maybe you have wondered what it would be like to live or work in a tree.  No, NOT a tree house, but actually live inside a tree.  This book is about famous and fascinating trees around the world.  Almost all of the trees listed in this book are still alive, a number of them are in the United States, and many of these are OVER 1,000 years old.  This book had so many interesting facts.  Who knew that trees could be so interesting?  The end of the book even gave basic facts about the types of trees that were listed in the in the story.  Not only does the book talk about how to take care of trees, the book was made out of recycled materials.  Oh, and if you want to learn more about the moon trees, visit  There was only one thing about this book I didn't like.  After learning about so many interesting trees I want to visit some of them, but I can't!  The exact location of some trees is a secret.  This protects the trees from possible vandalism.  Oh, well, I guess I'll have to read more books.
