When God makes the world, the first Man & Woman are amazed by the wonderful animals & plants with which they share their home. But what is their task in life? To find out, they decide to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, although God has advised them not to do so before it is ripe. When God sees what they have done, he gently explains that it is time for them to explore the four paths: the path of wonder, the path of emptiness, the path of making & the path of coming home. In this beautiful transformation of the traditional Christian creation story, Caitlin Matthews has written a modern myth that will inspire both adults & children. Alison Dexter's dramatic & exuberant illustrations celebrate the vitality & optimism of the text.
