Trafford Publishing

Barbara Sala’s Celestine and the Magical Geranium is about the relationship between a girl and a special flower. The girl tends to the flower, which in turn nourishes her soul. People unintentionally destroy the flower when they become overzealous in their enjoyment of it. This saddens the girl but her hope is restored when she realizes that she can grow more geraniums from the seeds left behind by the original one. Sala’s naïve artwork, rendered in acrylic and oil, is rich with bright colours. For more information on the author and this title, visit www.salanaiveart.com. mRb
