The Magpie’s Tale

£5.99

Out of stock

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.
