THE ROBIN & THE FIR TREE is a beautiful and visually stunning picture book by Jason Jameson that re-imagines the beloved Hans Christian Andersen’s short tale “The Little Fir Tree”.
The Fir Tree grows in a forest far away from the bustle of the town. It is a beautiful place, but he dreams of the excitement of the outside world. His friend the Robin tells him stories of the places she has seen, and the forest animals dress him up with berries and leaves, but he is still not happy. One day he is cut down and taken away to be a beautiful Christmas tree in the middle of town. He thinks his dreams have come true, but what will happen when his decorations are put away?
A lyrical story of friendship and new life with an ultimately uplifting ending. Jameson's pre-Raphaelite inspired illustrations make this a Christmas picture book of great beauty.
THE ROBIN & THE FIR TREE was published by Templar Publishing in November 2020. Unanico is also developing the picture book into a 30-minute animated special.
