Delightful storytelling

First published in 1954, Jean Giono’s environmental tale centres on one man who transformed a barren area of the French Alps with trees. Edinburgh-based Puppet State Theatre Company take Giono’s tale and do a similar transformation, turning it into a sensory wonderland of lavender-scented comedy. A 2006 hit for both children and adults that’s more than worthy of your attention.
