Crispin and the Great Tree

By Jay Montgomery @jaymontgomery

A new book that I illustrated 9 black and white interior illustrations and a color cover is out and available for sale on Amazon.com! It’s a great fantasy read for tweens and above. Unfortunately, I get no royalties off the sales, but if this book does good there are 15!! more books to illustrate and P.S. Naumann wants me to do them.

Story synopsis.
In 1930, a young boy named Crispin, who is seven-and-a-half years old, disobeys his parents by entering the forest and climbing the towering great White Pine tree he can see from a window in his home. However, he soon discovers that the great tree is suffering from a galloping deadly disease. To save it, he must set out on a quest, which he has only two days left to achieve.
