Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and performer Deborah Allen has released her first book, a children’s Christmas story titled “The Loneliest Christmas Tree.”
Originally written by Allen in 1986 but unreleased until now, “The Loneliest Christmas Tree” officially marks the multi-talented musical performer’s debut as an author. The 54-page, hardcover book tells the inspirational story of a solitary Christmas tree facing the threat of urban development and the unlikely hero that comes to its defense. The book, illustrated by Kix Brooks‘ daughter, Molly Brooks, is sure to be a Christmas classic for families this year.
“I am so proud of all the wonderful illustrations created by Molly Brooks,” says Allen. “Her brilliant eye and artistic hand truly brought my story to life! When I discovered that Molly was born the same year I wrote this book – and coincidentally on Christmas Eve – I knew it was a sign that she was meant to be a part of ‘The Loneliest Christmas Tree.’ She did an incredible job, and every single page is beautiful!”
