The Promise


On a mean street, in a mean town a young thief snatches an old woman’s bag. But inside she finds something more precious than money, something that changes her life, and sets her on a new path.

The beautiful words and pictures of The Promise carry a message of hope for humanity and for Earth: that we can change ourselves, and through that change transform our world for the better.

Inspired by the story of the lone tree planter Elsiar Bouffier, in Jean Giono's 'The Man Who Planted Trees' , The Promise is a very, very special picture book with an important message for children and adults of all ages.

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience, this is the ideal life.
Mark Twain
