The Third GiftBook - 2011
A boy is learning his father's craft, recognising the trees that release valuable resin and gathering the round drops, which look almost like pearls. Or tears. Today is a proud turning point for the boy. They have found a 'tear' of unusual size, big enough to fill his two hands. And in the marketplace, three strangers have their own surprising reason for wishing to buy the day's harvest. From an award-winning author and illustrator comes a moving tale about ordinary people involved in an extraordinary event, providing a window into a time some two thousand years ago.
