The Book of Trees is a new book by the best-selling authors of Pszczoły (‘The Book of Bees’); it’s a fabulously colourful large-format album about trees. The book consists of more than 34 large-format pages, each of which is intricately composed. The colourful illustrations are full of details, and the short and easy-to-read text not only explains what can be found on them, but also contains a lot of additional information and curiosities.
