How to Hug Trees & Other Secrets (2006)

There are a few things Jonas Mudge can’t imagine doing in a million years. Selling his farm and hugging trees are definitely among them…

Then out of the woods one night comes the mysterious GW in a waft of moss and a sparkle of dew, and Jonas is whisked off to a new life in which he might try anything, however daft.

But neither of them has counted on the arrival of Barnstaple Chuckleberry, lover of pies, cash and the sound of his own voice, and certainly no hugger of trees.
