Books Info:

Marigold and the Faraway Tree free pdf Marigold and the faraway tree is the story of a nine-year-old girl whose relationship with an old tree guides her through an important transition phase in her life. The story was inspired by the existence of a true-life tree growing at Imhoff farm, behind the Blue Water Cafe, next door to the Higgley Piggeldy farmyard in Kommetjie, not too far from Cape Point, one of the southern most points of Africa. It is a simple tale of universal wisdom that will not only engage young readers, but teach them an important life lesson as well. Children will be able to think about concepts such as kindness, happiness and friendship. The author, Alison Fast, believes that the best stories are homegrown and involve simple things such as a village, a character or even the change of seasons, interwoven with imagination, curiosity and wonderment. The charming illustrations by Wendy Paterson will enchant readers both young and old as they complement this simple but appealing story.
