A beautifully illustrated children's book unlike any other-a tender and atmospheric tale written by William Faulkner as a present for his future stepdaughter "If you are kind to helpless things, you don't need a Wishing Tree to make things come true." A strange boy leads a birthday girl and her companions on a hunt for the wishing tree, which brings them many surprising and magical adventures. Written in 1927 and eventually published in 1964 as a limited edition featuring Don Bolognese's striking illustrations, The Wishing Tree reveals another side to a visionary of American letters, making it a welcome gift to children and to all readers of Faulkner.
