About this book
This is a Korean edition of internationally acclaimed L'homme qui plantait des arbres (The Man Who Planted Trees) which depicts a simple and unassuming man who changed the face of the earth. As such it is a parable for modern times. Each one of us can plant a tree and save the world. Readers, adults and children alike, will enjoy this story of a miracle wrought by one human being. They will also experience the challenging task that faces us today of rebuilding our earth. Adapted for the cinema by Frederic Back and produced by the French language television service of Radio-Canada, The Man Who Planted Trees won an Oscar in 1987 for the best short animated film as well as the Grand Prix at the festivals of Annecy, Los Angeles, Royan, Hiroshima, Valladolid and Ottawa.
In the critically acclaimed film/book, the breathtaking annimation of Frederic Back combines with the rich language of renowned French author Jean Giono to create a story/film of extraordinary beauty and hope. Back's delicate pastels sweep the audience into the solitary world of Elzard Bouffier, a world in which one individual, undeterred by great wars and other setbacks, and without thought of reward, can make a significant difference. The Man Who Planted Trees is a parable for all ages and a triumphant testament to one man's indomitable spirit.
The book uses the beautiful drawings from the film to illustrate the story.
