In the middle from the wide Argentine pampas there once grew a magic tree. Above this tree slept a bird so evil it could stop the rain from falling. Illustrated with charming folk-art-like paintings and retold with simplicity and drama, this legend of a child's courage and faith explains why Argentineans think that good luck can be found inside the shade of a carob tree. And not far from this tree lived a brave boy who a single day set out to save his village and all the creatures from dying of thirst.
