Summary

A humorous fantasy story of greed set in a small Indian village, stunningly illustrated and retold by award-winning artist Jane Ray.
Jasmine’s garden has the most delicious fruit in the village—but someone is eating all her beautiful apples and apricots, kiwis and kumquats, papayas and peaches. Determined to discover the thief’s identity, Jasmine waits . . . and waits. Little does she imagine that when he arrives, he’ll lead her on a magical journey through the skies.
Using vibrant collage artwork with jewel-like colors, Jane Ray has outdone herself by creating a beautiful new style.
