And when each child pays him a visit later, Stillwater offers a beautiful gift—a very special story chosen especially for each of his guests.
First Addy drops by with a homemade cake. Stillwater rewards her with an ancient story about a man whose generosity is extended even to a thief.
When Michael visits Stillwater up in his tree, the boy is afraid he'll fall and break something. So Stillwater tells him a story about how bad things can really be good things in disguise.
Then Kurt shows up and complains about being angry at Michael. Stillwater has yet another ancient story about letting go of bad feelings.
With each story, the children learn something wonderful and important about life—and about themselves. To mark the contrast between the present and the past, the illustrations alternate between the soft watercolors of the ongoing storyline and the bold ink drawings of the ancient tales.
Listen along as Stillwater weaves his magic in this subtle and exquisite book infused with Eastern philosophy.
