What child can resist a hole in a tree? There is the adventure of discovery and the tip-toe moment as the hole is explored for the secret treasure it may conceal. Then there is the wonder of how such a hole came to be--who else has also discovered it--what other secrets has it held in its depths?

With her own enchanting drawings decorating every page, Jean George, well-known as the co-author and illustrator of her husband's books, tells small children about a hole in an apple tree. Intensifying rather than losing the excitement and wonder of such a secret place, the author writes with skill and humor a scientifically accurate story of how The Hole in the Tree was first started, what helped to make it bigger and bigger; who used it as a home or a hiding place; how Scot and Paula happened to find it; who took it from them and what happened to the treasures they had stored in this wonderful hole. And when the message that Paula has written and forgotten all about comes back to her, the turn-about of events will delight every reader.
