Daddy's Climbing Tree

by C. S. Adler

[From the front dust jacket flap:] "How could Daddy be dead? Jessica refuses to believe that her lovable, funny, teddy-bear father could vanish from the world with the speed of a hit-and-run accident. She goes to the funeral and stands by while visitors offer sympathy, but she's convinced that Daddy is still alive. He must be back at the big farmhouse in Oldminesville, from which they just moved. Taking her little brother Tycho with her, Jessica sets out to find her father. As the long trip across the state park wears on, though, she begins to wonder whether this is the right thing to do. But she has to be sure. Where else would Daddy go but back to the house where he grew up, with the climbing tree towering over the yard? In this touching and compassionate story, C.S. Adler evokes the tremendous pain and grief that come with losing a parent, as well as the strong love needed for healing and ultimate acceptance." Look for more books by C. S.
