As Mr. Butterfield carves a Jesse Tree in a dusty old church, a curious young boy distracts him by asking about the various symbols on the tree. Against his inclination, thegruff old man finds himself retelling the familiar biblical tales that trace the family tree of Christ, from the Garden of Eden to Jesus birth. Under the carpenters skilled hands, the Jesse Tree grows?and an unlikely friendship begins to take root as well.

Geraldine McCaughreans fresh retellings of familiar Bible events and Bee Willeys whimsical and striking illustrations create a rich and contemporary tale that will captivate readers who know and love these stories as well as readers who are discovering them for the first time.
