The Tale of the Heaven Tree

The Tale of the Heaven Tree

by Mary Joslin (Author), Meilo So (Illustrator), Meilo So (Illustrator), Mary Joslin (Author)


The Maker's good and beautiful wolrd has been spoiled by people's selfishness. A child's caring act provides the solution that overcomes the destructive power of greed and provides a way back to paradise. 'Paradise is turned into scenes of devastation by man. A child plants a seed, which grows into a tree, and under it appears a new earthly paradise. Depicted in decorative, oriental watercolours...the story's punchline points heavenward.' Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times Fine detailed brushwork and a creative use of language which is printed so that it blends beautifully with the illustrations make this picture story book a very good resource to use with primary pupils...Illustrated beautifully on every page, this magical story adds a spiritual dimension to the story of creation...Highly recommended" RE Today, Spring 2000 Issue
