Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
— William Shakespeare
Lulu, an adventurous redhead who gets chicken pox, finds a clever way to climb a tree while staying inside her bedroom in Another Way to Climb a Tree, by Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Hadley Hooper, A Neal Porter Book, Roaring Book Press, 2017. The art creates a magical world for this cat-rescuing, overall-wearing human-kite who is missed by the trees themselves when she’s sick.
