“The incredibly inspiring story chronicled in Three Cups of Tea is beautifully captured in picture book format. This is a perfect introduction to the idea that one person can make a difference in the world. The colorful collage art marries the text to the visual in a spectacular way.”
-- Diane Capriola, Little Shop of Stories, Decatur, GA


Description


Greg Mortenson stumbled, lost and delirious, into a remote Himalayan village after a failed climb up K2. The villagers saved his life, and he vowed to return and build them a school. The remarkable story of his promise kept is now perfect for reading aloud. Told in the voice of Korphe’s children, this story illuminates the humanity and culture of a relevant and distant part of the world in gorgeous collage, while sharing a riveting example of how one person can change thousands of lives.
