There are so many ways I could try to describe Regarding the Trees, but after calling it "humor, kid-power, MCBA-book--2009, real-life, school, wit, and written-in-letters", I still somehow haven't captured the nature of this book! It's a hilarious, rollicking story told in letters, newspaper clippings, school projects, video transcripts, notes passed in class, and much more. Sure, the 6th graders in Mr. N's class are on a mission to save the trees at Geyser Creek Middle School. But don't forget all of the intentional misunderstandings, uncovering of a secret society, a boy-vs.-girl feud that extends all the way to the librarian (female) and the mayor (male), and an exploration of every possible word-play or meaning connected to trees! This really is a fabulous way to tell a story.
