Sobo's tree

"At the top of our hill, stands an immense tree that dominates the surrounding countryside.
This tree was Sobo's favorite tree.
In the summer, we took the little path that climbs up there, and we sat at his foot to contemplate the blue line that was trembling, all over there on the horizon.
The branches of the tree enveloped us like arms.
Sobo said to me, "Look Kimi, look at the sea far away. "
My holidays, I always spent them in Sobo's house, while my parents were working in the city. "

The meeting of two stars of the children's book: Marie Sellier and Charlotte Gastaut.

In Sobo's Tree, the narrator, Kimi, relates the singular bond that united her to her missing grandmother, Sobo. Sobo was an excellent cook and especially an extraordinary embroiderer. On vacation in Sobo's home, Kimi was learning to embroider motifs for sumptuous kimonos. When Sobo joined the spirits, becoming herself a "Kami", Kimi took control of her destiny ... With infinite sweetness and great sensitivity, this initiatory tale tells us about universal subjects: the transmission of knowledge and the loss of a loved one.
