Bella's Tree

Written by Janet Russell
Illustrated by Jirina Marton

  • 2009 Governor General's Award Winner

Bella's Tree tells the story of a grandmother who has become "crooked" because she’s too old to go out and find the perfect Christmas tree. Her spunky granddaughter, Bella, and Bruno the dog are certain they can do the job and put a smile on Nan's face. They sing for inspiration and enlist the help of some birds to help them pick the right tree. Will it be "the beauty, the beautier," or "the beautiest?" Will they come through for Nan? Janet Russell's rich, Newfoundland-infused language and Jirina Marton's evocative images of snowy woods and cozy interiors bring this sweet holiday tale to life for young readers.
