Buy Under the Great Plum Tree

We’re so excited to share the brand new trailer for Under the Great Plum Tree, a heartwarming animal tale about friendship from author Sufiya Ahmed and illustrator Reza Dalvand.

Watch the trailer!

An unlikely friendship between Miss Bandari and Mr Magarmach forms when the pair meet at the foot of a plum tree deep in the heart of India. Mr Magarmach is old and his hunting days are over but Miss Bandari loves hearing his stories as they munch plums together. One day their friendship is tested but with courage, trust and forgiveness they discover that living happily together tastes just as sweet as Miss Bandari’s golden plums.

The story of the monkey and the crocodile is a fable from the Panchatantra, an ancient Indian collection of animal fables dated to 300 BCE. But it’s a tale from around the world and versions can be found in Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, China, Japan and the Caribbean.
