“A Girl Tara and the Magic Tree” is a modern ecological fairy tale about the struggle of young generations in saving Planet Earth. Eleven-year-old Tara with her parents moves from city to a village, in a house where her grandfather has lived, on the slopes of the beautiful Rainbow Mountains. Very soon she realized that the whole area is in danger, and that her grandfather left a riddle that will help her to unleash incredible power – to see the sadness of the nature!

By linking the legends of the magic tree, the woman with purple eyes, the unicorn ram and the guardians of the magic wool, Tara unlocks the door of secrets and uncovers the subtle plan of the potentates from the Town of Char that destroy the environment. The boy Timothy, a donkey – Magical Maga, forest animals and the unusual gentleman Hope helped her in that endeavor.

The story of a girl Tara is an educational story about the amazing power of love and the importance of respecting and preserving the green and blue spaces of our only home.Through its powerful story, this book will plant the seed of environmental awareness in everyone who reads it.
