Robin Muller brings his story-telling magic and luminous illustrations to the pioneer days with the tale of The Angel Tree. It is the story of Kit, apprentice to the blacksmith Grimshaw. For seven long years, the boy has obeyed the demands and dictates of his tyranical master. Kit's only pleasure is resting among the branches of an ancient tree that stands near the smithy--a tree he loves deeply.
One day, the trilling song of a sparrow attracts Kit's attention and looking up, he sees an angel. She explains she needs Kit's help in keeping the tree from dying. Together they forge three magical tools--a dainty trowel to penetrate rock-hard soil and give the roots room to grow, time shears to cut away the dead wood, and a beautiful pitcher to water and nourish the tree.
That night, Kit has a strange dream, and wakes to find the magical tools are gone. How will Kit keep the angel's tree alive?
The young boy's troubles are just beginning. He soon encounters a mysterious stranger, and has to face the wrath of Grimshaw and a raging fire. In the end, Kit learns the meaning of the angel's words, Even in the deepest darkness, there is a silver thread of hope.
