The Great Tree: A Christmas Fable by Able Barrett 


Publisher ‏ : ‎ The Last Road Dog; 2nd edition (October 17, 2022)

Publication date ‏: ‎ October 17, 2022; 45 pages

Book Description:

Andrew and his older brother Nicholas were separated as children.

Nicholas had been snatched away by the Prince of Darkness, and Andrew had all but given up hope, but now their mother is ill, and he’s determined to reunite them before she passes – despite her objections.

With his dog Jenny by his side, Andrew sets out on an epic and perilous crusade well beyond his wildest imagination, facing evil protectors, giant wolves, dark magic, Sorcerers, Goblins, and even the Prince of Darkness himself.

Then there’s The Great Tree.

It’s enormous, with a presence that’s nearly impossible to describe…

And it’s clearly the heart of the kingdom of the wicked Sorcerer.

This is the setting for the adventure story that changed Christmas forever!

Review By LAWonder10:

The Great Tree, is a new fantastical version of an old Christmas tale.

The Great Tree setting is during medieval times. Entrenched with the fun fantasy of that age in history and a snowy hillside with a lone tree. It is the perfect setting.

This new version of an old tale may become the most enjoyed by newer generations.

The story and illustrations were done well. The illustrations were too dark and hard to see up close. Further away, they would be blurry and images barely visible. 

The story was a narrative. It was written well but was weak “pulling the reader into the scenes”.

The title and Cover image were a great fit. They were both eye-catching and appealing.

I offer a Four Stars rating.
