Meet Zeze – Brazil’s naughtiest, and most loveable boy, his appetite for mischief matched only by his capacity for kindness. When he grows up he wants to be a ‘poet with a bow-tie’ but for now he entertains himself playing pranks on the other residents of his family’s impoverished Rio de Janeiro shanty town and conjuring a varied cast of friends into being with his imagination. That is, until he meets a real friend, and his life begins to change…

My Sweet Orange Tree is a worldwide classic of children’s literature – never out of print in Brazil since it was first published in 1968, it has also been translated into an astonishing number of languages and won the hearts of young readers from Korea to Turkey, Poland to Thailand and in many other countries too.
