The Magpie's Tale Paperback
Part of the Animal Tales series
A cheeky magpie is protecting his horde of sparkling treasure one hot afternoon when he sees a crowd begin to gather.
As he watches with growing interest he sees fat little Zacchaeus trying to peep over the crowd - but he can't see, and he can't get through!
Zacchaeus climbs the magpie's tree and together they watch as Jesus comes near - the magpie huddles over his treasure as Jesus calls up to Zacchaeus - does Jesus know the magpie's treasure is stolen?
As Zacchaeus gives back the money he has cheated the people out of the magpie too starts to return his stolen goods - even the ring he took from Zacchaeus! A charming slant on the famous Bible story told and illustrated by two best-loved children's picture book creators.
