Chin uses an imaginative story with beautiful illustrations to present factual information about the coast redwoods. The text is clear and concise. The watercolor illustrations are detailed and use varying perspectives to portray a visual narrative. Past and present are blended with urban and natural worlds to convey the majesty and endurance of the tree and its forest.

A boy becomes magically immersed into the life, history and majesty of the California Redwood rainforest after finding a book titled “Redwoods” on a bench in the city subway. Realistic watercolor illustrations are paired with an imaginative blend of nonfiction and fantasy.
