THE THIRD GIFT by Linda Sue Park

The Third Gift
by Linda Sue Park
illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline
Clarion Books, on shelves November 15, 2011
review copy provided by the publisher

I opened this book excitedly because the author is Linda Sue Park, because the illustrator is Bagram Ibatoulline.

I read, savoring every word, learning about the harvesting of the resin of a shrub native to the Arabian Peninsula.

I was delighted to learn the name for the resin, and the reason that the boy's extra large "tear" of resin is chosen for purchase...and by whom.

I'm not going to say any more. I don't want to spoil the surprise for you. Find a copy and read for yourself.
