Description

One hot, dry summer in Zambia, the rain stops falling. Soon, the animals are very hungry and thirsty. How can they recover? They have heard of a wonderful tree that can produce fruit, but it will only do so if it is asked by name - and no one can remember what it is called! The animals agree to send a messenger to the wise mountain to find out the name of the tree and bring it back. One by one, the animals set out, but remembering the name is not as easy as they had imagined...

About Author

Lari Don was born in Chile and brought up in Scotland. She has worked in politics and for the BBC, but now spends her time passing on old stories and making up new ones. She is a traditional storyteller, as well as an award-winning children's author, whose love of myths, legends and fables inspires her fiction. Lari lives in Edinburgh with her family and has also written Little Red Riding Hood for Barefoot Books. Melanie Williamson draws her pictures in a cosy studio in Manchester and loves all things bright and quirky. She doesn't have a pet tiger, but her cat looks just like a snow leopard ... and he can swim! This is her first project with Barefoot Books.
