Book Description

The second picture book from Madonna with beautiful artwork by American artist Loren Long.

Tommy Tittlebottom sees Mr Peabody taking an apple from Mr Funkadeli's fruit market and is very surprised that he doesn't pay. Then Tommy sees it happen again and decides that Mr Peabody is a thief. Word spreads quickly around the town. When Mr Peabody arrives at the baseball ground, ready for the usual Saturday game, only Billy Little turns up and he soon explains what has happened. It is then up to Mr Peabody to teach Tommy about the importance of truth and the power of words.

From the Author
'While I've envisioned myself doing many things in this life, writing children's books was never one of them...Raising kids makes most people, including myself, grow up at least a little. It also makes us more responsible and more thoughtful about our own actions and their consequences for those around us...I hope these chiLdren's books inspire kids of all ages - even grown-up ones. This book was inspired by a nearly 300-year-old story that was told to me by my Kabbalah teacher. It is about the power of words. And how we must choose them carefully to avoid causing harm to others.

The Baal Shem Tov - MASTER OF THE GOOD NAME - who was the author of the original story, was also a great teacher. He dedicated his life to heping others, and stressed the value and importance of love for all people. I hope that I have done his story justice. This book is dedicated to teachers everywhere'- Madonna --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
