The tree and the bird

Illustrations by Teresa Arroyo Corcobado

A young tree pushes its way out of the ground, as yet knowing nothing of the world. A swallow lands in its branches and starts to tell the tree about its journeys, which amaze the tree. The seasons pass and the tree grows.

 L’arbre et l’oiseau (The Tree and the Bird) is the story of an encounter between a plant and an animal.

The tale of a friendship between two beings who could not be further apart.
