About this book

Why Willows Weep is an enchanting collection of short stories from the Woods written by some of Britain's finest authors. Edited by Tracy Chevalier, bestselling author of "Girl with a Pearl Earring", who has herself written a story explaining why the birch tree has silver bark. With stunning illustrations by Leanne Shapton, this beautiful new edition will help to raise awareness of the Woodland Trust, and vital funds. The authors have kindly donated their stories, enabling the Woodland Trust to plant five native trees for every copy of "Why Willows Weep" sold.

This bundle contains specially commissioned stories from William Fiennes, James Robertson, Richard Mabey, Tracy Chevalier, Susan Elderkin, Rachel Billington, Blake Morrison, Maria McCann, Terence Blacker, Joanne Harris, Philippa Gregory, Catherine O'Flynn, Tahmima Anam, Maggie O'Farrell, Amanda Craig, Ali Smith, Philip Hensher, Salley Vickers, and Kate Mosse.
