The Magpie's Tale

Full Product Description

The Magpie's Tale by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen retells the story of Zacchaeus through the tale of a cheeky magpie protecting his horde of sparkling treasure.

One hot afternoon, he sees a crowd begin to gather. He watches with growing interest as fat little Zacchaeus tries 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 new slant on the famous Bible story told and illustrated by two best-loved children's picture book creators.
