Today’s book is from Penguin Random House South Africa.
Telling the story of a nine-year-old girl, Marigold and the Faraway Tree explores how an old tree plays an important role as she moves through an important transition phase in her life. Inspired by the existence of a true-life tree at Imhoff Farm, behind the Blue Water Café, it’s a simple tale full of universal wisdom that will engage with young readers and teach them important life lessons as well. Covering concepts such as kindness, happiness, and friendship, the book also features charming illustrations by Wendy Paterson that will enchant readers of all ages as they complement this simple but appealing story. 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.
