The Miggy Tree

Tuesday 20 March, 2007

miggy_treeThe Miggy Tree was written as a gift by Karl Yeomans for his mum, Margot, more affectionately known as Miggy to celebrate her 50th birthday.

In 2006, when Karl was only 33, his life was tragically cut short by a malignant brain tumour. Shortly after his death his partner, Julie Buxton, decided to bring this wonderful poem to life as a beautifully illustrated book and a precious gift for their two year old son, Marlow, and his grandma, Miggy.

Karl's eloquent and quirky prose is complemented by a set of exquisite illustrations by illustrator, Anna Walker, transporting us into the magical, whimsical world of The Miggy Tree.

The Miggy Tree is a book that every mum would be delighted to receive and every child would be thrilled to read.

To honour the late Karl Yeomans, a portion of the sales from this book are being donated to the Cancer Council Victoria.
