The Verse about the Book of the Dove (Голубиная книга, Golubinaya Kniga) is a medieval Russian religious ballad. At least 20 versions are known. They vary in length from 30 to over 900 lines. The poem is generally thought to have been written ca. 1500 in the Novgorod region, though Russian nationalists postulate its great antiquity. The earliest extant manuscript is dated to the 17th century.

In The Dove Tree, written by Nan Hunt and illustrated by Alison Kubbos (Australia: Random House, 1992), a young boy tells the story of a special tree with "flowers that look like white doves or handkerchiefs." When the boy falls ill and his best friend Hannah dies, he turns to this tree for inspiration.

The narrator leaps into the story, without properly introducing the characters or setting. Almost immediately, the narrator reflects on when he was seven years old, and "had to spend a lot of time in [the] hospital." The book lacks proper transitions, both in picture and in word. For instance, on one page, he and Hannah are dancing in a field. Flip the page and "Hannah and Jonathan and Adam and their father and mother were killed in a car accident."

The serious subject of death and illness are treated indifferently. At one point, the boy asks a doctor if he is going to die. The doctor's response: "We don't know from day to day who will be alive tomorrow." If a child were reading this on his or her own (or even with an adult), they may walk away terrified their loved ones could die anytime.

The illustrations in The Dove Tree are lackluster, devoid of color and interest. Half of the sketches are of overly idealistic, overall-wearing characters picnicking or frolicking in the countryside. The rest of the book consists of disturbing images, such as an eerie close-up of the doctor. The layout is predictable and uninteresting; the pictures always occupy the right pages, while all the text falls on the left side, atop a background of glaring white.

The Dove Tree, which loosely targets those in the grades fifth and sixth, is unsuitable for school libraries and public libraries. The Saddest Time by Norma Simon is a better addition, as it handles the topics with much more clarity and sensitivity.

I made the mistake of reading this for the first time with my 4 year old daughter and 3 year old son. I am a believer in letting children learn lessons of life and don't try to shield them from illness and death...however, this book deals with both, and neither in a remotely appropriate manner. The narrator's best friend dies suddenly while she is herself suffering from cancer. As I read along, I expected there to be some resolution ...none came. We don't know if the child recovers. This is definitely not a book I would recommend, even as one trying to explain death or serious illness to a child. The issues were not at all gently presented. Definitely worth a miss!
