Red and Lulu

By Matt Tavares
Illustrated by Matt Tavares

The miles cannot keep a determined cardinal bird from his loved one in this Christmas ode to serendipity and hope.

From Matt Tavares comes a heart-tugging story combining all the cheer of Christmas, all the magic of New York City, and the real meaning of the festive season: how important it is to be surrounded by love. Red and Lulu make their nest in a beautiful evergreen tree. It shades them in the hot months and keeps them cosy in the cold months, and once a year the people who live nearby string lights on their tree and sing a special song: O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree. But one day, something unthinkable happens, and Red and Lulu are separated. It will take a miracle for them to find each another again. Luckily, it’s just the season for miracles...

  • A warm-hearted, beautifully illustrated, original Christmas story: "O Christmas Tree" meets Make Way for Ducklings.
  • Set against an iconic New York City backdrop.
