Well, I have bad news and good news today. I’ll start with the bad news… Sarx and the Thorn (by Martha Sales) is no longer in print. Sarx and the Thorn is a story about Sarx, a new corn plant in Johnnie Waters’ garden. Although a friendly cat warns Sarx about allowing thorns to grow next to him, Sarx ignores her advice when a thorn pops up and appears small and friendly. The story has a happy ending while also reinforcing the lesson of the harm that comes when thorns are allowed to grow. This story is a fun read for kids, and it’s unfortunate that it’s no longer in print! 🙁
However, now I also have good news! I’m excited to share with you an audio book of Sarx and the Thorn read by Johnnie Waters (Abel) himself:) Enjoy!!
