The Copper Tree

The Copper Tree Class

The Copper Tree Class is a series of books following the lives of a small group of children and the lives of those around them. The creators, Hilary Robinson and Mandy Stanley, have addressed critical topics and themes that affect small children, such as death, relationships with the elderly, adoption, child caregivers and bullying and gently interwoven those strands into accessible and charming picturebooks.
