About the book: 
On a hot summer’s day, the animals wandered, they roamed and explored, they galloped and soared, in search for the perfect tree for their needs.
Many trees were falling one by one, from the force and destruction of what the elephants had done.
And some of the trees that had stood the test, had patches of bark missing from the rhino’s unrest.
And looking more closely at the top of the trees, sat fish eagles in waiting to soar and fly free.
Will the animals find the perfect tree?
