From stunning debut talent Sarah Jung comes a heartwarming and beautifully told story about family, planting roots, and standing tall in the face of your fears.

June's father is like a goose — he flies away for long periods of time, which means that June doesn’t get to see him very often. So June is extra happy when Father comes home, and happier still when the family does something extra special together to mark the occasion — they plant a tangerine tree, June’s favorite fruit! “Next time I am here, this tree will be bigger, and so will you,” says Father.

Caring for a growing sapling is a great responsibility and June takes it very seriously. When an accident happens and the tree topples over, June worries he may never see his father again. But things that have fallen can be replanted, and sometimes facing our biggest fears reveals our greatest strengths.
