About this book
When he is grown up, Zézé wants to be "a poet with a bow tie..." For the moment, he is a small five-year-old Brazilian who is discovering what life is. At home, he is a true imp who makes silly things on silly things and receives terrible smackings. At school, on the contrary, José is an "angel" with the heart of gold and with the wild imagination which makes his teacher so happy as much as he is gifted and intelligent. However, even for a merry and mischievous child, the life is sometimes difficult in a poor Brazilian family. Then, when he is sad, Zézé takes refuge at his friend, Minguinho, a small foot of sweet oranges, to which he entrusts all his secrecies. My Sweet Orange Tree is an autobiographical novel in which José Mauro de Vasconcelos tells with nostalgia and emotion his Brazilian childhood.
