§As reported by publisher
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Meilo So's illustrations give an entirely unexpected setting to a classic and profound story. The tale itself originates from Jesus; it tells of a person's quest to find the finest pearls in all the world, and his surprising discovery about what is really valuable. Sometimes it is essential to give up lesser things in order to have the one thing that you most value. What Quentin Blake says about Meilo So's illustrations for The Tale of the Heaven Tree: "The Tale of the Heaven Tree has that certain something that sets it apart. The visual treatment - line, electric with nervous energy and a lively use of watercolour - is able to convey not only a scene of devastation but also the springing life of trees and brids which is the main message of the book." Also in this series: The Knockout Story of David and Goliath illustrated by Bernice Lum.
