Mr B's Book Review: Under the Great Plum Tree
Under the Great Plum Tree is set in the heart of the jungle. The story originates from Panchatantra, which is an ancient Indian collection of animal fables.
It tells the story of the monkey and the crocodile, who forge a very special and unlikely friendship.
The monkey has a heart of gold whilst the crocodile is somewhat naive, which comes back to bite him in this beautiful tale of courage and forgiveness.
Watch out for King Crocodile in this story, who will prove to be a huge obstacle to monkey and crocodile's blossoming friendship.
This story reminds children that we all make mistakes and that we can learn from them.
