The Puriri Tree & the Little Houhere Tree
The Puriri Tree & the Little Houhere Tree
Jenkins, Carol & Little, Don
A little puriri tree is planted by an old woman in her lovely garden. It grows much bigger than expected and gives joy to the children who visit the garden. But it hides a tiny houhere which longs to be noticed and loved too. Eventually the puriri becomes old and brittle. The little houhere grieves for its friend but with more light and space it thrives and is admired. It wonders if it is alright to be loving life so much but then it hears the puriri whispering encouragement and reassurance. Author Bio note: Carol Jenkins can't remember a time she didn't enjoy drama and poetry and writing stories and plays. During her teaching career which spanned four decades her plays were enjoyed in the classroom and produced on stage. She has also written stories and articles for children and their parents for the website of a charitable trust. The Puriri Tree & the Little Houhere Tree is her first picture book for children. When Wellington artist Don Little read her story, he liked it so much he decided to produce a composite painting to illustrate the story.
