The Tree With the Golden Oranges

Luigi Capuana

Children (3 - 10)

Once, a king had in his magnificent garden the rarest and most prized of all trees: a tree that made golden oranges. During the orange season, the king would post a guard to watch over his prized tree, but one morning, he found his trusted guard fast asleep and his golden oranges all gone. The same happened the following year, and the enraged king was now determined, more than ever, to capture the mystery thief.
