The Sticky, Sticky Pine

The Sticky, Sticky Pine.

A traditional story from Japan, retold and illustrated by Jem Yoshioka

Long, long ago in Japan, deep in the forest, there lived a woodcutter. He was kind to the trees and only collected branches that had been blown down in the wind. That way, he didn’t hurt the trees. The kind woodcutter knew that trees were alive, so he looked after them.
