[32] pages. A children's book that takes readers up into the canopy of the ancient redwoods. It's a world inhabited by owls, salamanders, pill bugs and Humboldt flying squirrels living in the secluded expanse hundreds of feet above the ground, amid mossy branches where ferns, shrubs and sometimes even other trees grow. The lyrical text is an adaptation of the British nursery rhyme, This is the House that Jack Built. Reader-friendly sidebars contain scientific information about scenes illustrated in the book, which were fact checked by Deborah Zierten, Save the Redwood’s League’s Education and Interpretation Manager. A new copy.

It's common knowledge that coast redwoods are tall, tall trees. In fact, they are the tallest trees in the world. What most people don't know is that there is a whole other forest growing high in the canopy of a redwood forest. This adaptation of The House That Jack Built climbs into this secret, hidden habitat full of all kinds of plants and animals that call this forest home.
