A picture book of great beauty and hope about the power we have to transform our world. On a mean street in a mean city, a thief tries to snatch an old womanâ€™s bag.
But she finds she canâ€™t have it without promising something in return â€“ to â€œplant them allâ€.
When it turns out the bag is full of acorns, the young thief embarks on a journey that changes her own life and the lives of others for generations to come.
Inspired by the belief that a relationship with nature is essential to every human being, and that now, more than ever, we need to renew that relationship, The Promise is the story of a magical discovery that will touch the heart and imagination of every reader, young and old.
With poignant simplicity, honesty and lyricism, Nicola Davies evokes a powerful vision of a world where people and nature live in harmony. And Laura Carlin's delicate illustrations capture a young girlâ€™s journey from a harsh, urban reality to the beauty and vitality of a changed world.
