Introducing our Book of the Month for September… Under the Great Plum Tree. An unlikely friendship between a kind-hearted monkey and an old crocodile forms when the pair meet under the great plum tree, deep in the heart of India. They spend their days sharing stories and eating golden plums, until one day their friendship is tested. Beautifully written by @sufiyaahmed with colourful illustrations by @_rezadalvand_ , Under the Great Plum Tree is a universal story about trust, courage and friendship. The original story can be found in the Panchatantra, an ancient Indian collection of animal fables dated to 300 BCE – with variations told across the globe. Published by @tiny_owl_publishing.
