Through the window, a resplendent coral tree comes to life. One morning there is a burst of orange crimson, and already the tree's many admirers have arrived: babblers, a langur, a rat snake... Evoking moods as varied as the creatures that inhabit the tree, the text pulsates with the energy and warmth of activity. Photographs beautifully capture the tree in different stages of its growth through many perspectives. Interesting tidbits provide additional information about the tree.

What a treat!

In clear and succinct language that has a lyrical beat to it, the author informs the child about the tree, the various parts of the flower and its flowering cycle. And for a reader who is eager to know, additional snippets of information is also provided on each pageWith the result that the book is a smooth read from start to finish - jargon free and clutter free. Something which is quite rare in non-fiction books. Adding to the charm are vivid photographs combined with simple illustrations. What a treat! Young India Books

Candid pictures

The candid pictures in the book are, without a doubt, taken by a tree lover with a fond eye and uncanny timing for capturing nature's little entertainers in action. - Vinod Lal Heera Eshwer
