Join 8 year old Oliver T. Baker, as he shows you exactly why Trees are Best (and diggers are not), in this fully interactive picture book exploring the beauty and wonder of trees.

This inspiring app blends beautiful illustration with hours of fun, through animated features and a specially designed art page, allowing you to draw your very own tree and share with all your friends.

♥ See what Media Reviewers are saying ♥,

"Trees Are Best is as clever and well-turned out as any application for children or adults available today." (PadGadget gives us 4.5/5)

"Besides being a really funny and informative book, Trees are Best FACT is also highly interactive and full of surprises. Wonderful iPad book. FACT." (Kids Apps Mobi features it as App of the Week)

♥ See what iTunes Reviewers are saying ♥,

"This is a fantastic app. It's informative, imaginative and keeps the kids amused with both the information about trees and also the drawing section....." (UK iTunes Store)

"This app is brilliant, since downloading it I have spent ages on the drawing page posting my trees to my facebook page! I'm also looking forward to the build your own tree house page in the update. Brilliant value for money too." (UK iTunes Store)

Sit back and enjoy the tale, as well as learning about just how amazing trees are.

“James Pendlebury says that diggers are best, but he always says stupid things that are wrong. Just last Tuesday, he said that Jenny Lemmon said that squirrels are a type of cat.
They are not.”

Written and illustrated by the award winning design studio Firecatcher and brought to life by hedgehog lab.
