A humorous fantasy story of greed set in a small Indian village, stunningly illustrated and retold by award-winning artist Jane Ray.
Jasmine's garden has the most delicious fruit in the village--but someone is eating all her beautiful apples and apricots, kiwis and kumquats, papayas and peaches. Determined to discover the thief's identity, Jasmine waits . . . and waits. Little does she imagine that when he arrives, he'll lead her on a magical journey through the skies.
