When baby Jack arrives, his father and mother plant an apple seedling to honor his birth. As Jack grows taller, so does the tree. When Jack is happy, the tree limbs stand straight and proud. When he is cold, the leaves tremble on their stems. But one day Jackâs parents awake to find his bed empty. When they see a gull perched atop the tree, they realize that their Jack has run away to sea. Paul Fleischmanâs lyrical prose and Barry Rootâs magical illustrations tell the story of a boyâs powerful connection to his family despite distance â and adds new meaning to the old custom of planting a birthday tree.
