Book Summary:
As the story begins, palm trees in Jerusalem clap their fronds with delight when Little Wind visits. But then someone new arrives who can make the trees burst into applause without Little Wind’s touch.

Little Wind couldn’t help getting excited. He twisted up high for a better view. Would he spot a noble horse? A crown with jewels? A royal parade? But all he saw was Quiet Man, still as a windless day. Sitting on a foal, he moved along a dusty road.

Little Wind’s friend Bare Tree reassures him that Quiet Man is indeed Real King, but then everything suddenly goes wrong. Will the trees ever clap again? And when soldiers come with torches to destroy Jerusalem, what will happen to Bare Tree?

Described from the unique perspective of the Little Wind and the Trees that clap for Real King’s arrival, this beautifully illustrated picture book provides a never-before-seen view of the biblical story from the Gospels. Accompanied by Khoa Le’s gorgeous artwork, which is reminicent of classic illuminated manuscripts, this story continues beyond Palm Sunday and the Resurrection and relates how the destruction of Jerusalem and the mission for believers to spread the Good News together point to the day when Real King will once again come in victory.
