The Promise | Nicola Davies, illustrated by Laura Carlin

The Promise by Nicola Davies

On a mean street in a mean city, a young girl tries to snatch an old woman’s bag. But to the thief’s surprise, the bag is full of acorns. The discovery triggers a journey that changes not only the girl’s life but those of generations to come. It’s a fable of creating a sustainable relationship with nature, and its charming illustrations make it a delightful book for readers aged two to six years old.
