“I know what yearning is. It’s something that can be felt everywhere inside you. More than anything it can be felt underneath the clothes, but where exactly, I don’t know.”
A sensitive story describes a little girl’s feelings and thoughts after her father’s death. The child stands pondering in a railway station under the big trees, while her mother is buying tickets to go to the new place. When suddenly jackdaws take flight from the tree and disappear into the distance, the girl knows what the tree must feel. Loss, sadness, and yearning are all familiar to the child.
Finnish writer Riitta Jalonen’s story “The Girl and the Jackdaw Tree” received the Finlandia Junior’s literary prize.

From Tammi foreign rights brochure:
A memory never ends
The Girl and the Jackdaw Tree describes a turning point in a little girl’s life, the unavoidable changes caused by her father’s death. Her thoughts and feelings relate a sensitive story – with the child pondering the happenings of her life under a tall tree. The tree is known as a Jackdaw tree as a flock of these big birds frequently nest in the safety of its branches. The girl knows how the tree must feel when the jackdaws suddenly take flight and disappear into the distance, leaving the tree on its own, missing the birds. Memories of her father arise as pictures before her eyes.
In Kristiina Louhi’s illustrations these memories fly. The images manage to convey such a scale of emotions and feelings that they can almost be tasted. They glow with the same intensity as Riitta Jalonen’s story: from descriptions of brief moments to greater ones, revealing a unique and wholesome story – a child’s magic world in which joy and sorrow are both present.
