Joseph's Cradle

By Jude Daly

A moving and warm-hearted celebration of community and creativity, inspired by a true story.

Everyone loves the big tree that stands at the heart of the village - especially Joseph. So when, one stormy night, the tree is blown down, Joseph carves a beautiful cradle from the trunk - for his new baby, Sisi, and for every baby born in the village from that day on.

But when at last it is time for Sisi's own grandchild to be rocked in the cradle, a terrible fire strikes the village and the cradle disappears. Is Joseph's cradle lost forever?
