Synopsis

The Jesse Tree by Geraldine McCaughrean

Taking her inspiration from the medieval tradition of carving Jesse Trees - a method used to explain the genealogy of Jesus - McCaughrean uses all her skill as a storyteller to weave together evocative retellings of Bible stories with a contemporary tale about the creation of a modern-day Jesse Tree and the transforming power of friendship and love.

Reviews

'Vivid and fresh'

's Bookseller Supplement 'An outstandingly successful demonstration of McCaughrean's skill at retelling traditional stories for contemporary audiences'

Anne Fine on Geraldine McCaughrean:

'I reckon Geraldine McCaughrean knocks the socks off every other children's writer today. Everything she does is different and everything works – look at her list of prizes. She must write in tremendous bursts. Some years, she's so prolific the rest of us start joking that the fairies come in at night to do her work for her. Then she'll go quiet, so unlike all those writers who are persuaded by their publishers to come up with something every year, no matter how tired or drab. If Geraldine has nothing fresh to write, she doesn't write it.' (The Guardian)
