“Mrs Lee lives next door, all alone. She hates our tree”...but does Mrs Lee realise how we are connected to each other, the trees, the animals and the whole of the natural world?

Beauty is a story that celebrates the importance of trees, community and the relationships that nurture us all. Cleverly blending fiction and non fiction Beauty explores the role the Beauty Leaf Tree plays in the wider community of animals, insects and plants.
