This picture book is a tribute to those who prefer their own company, or that of a tree, or bird. The illustrations are reminiscent of Jean-Jacques Sempé’s simple but evocative style. Unlike the eponymous tree Bertolt, the narrator, a self-proclaimed loner, goes unnamed. As a similarly-minded adult, I found this touching tale for children a breath of fresh air.

For any kid, or any body, who likes to keep to themselves and also loves nature. Bertolt is a tranquil force of friendship.
