9781463731298: The Painted Chest

The Painted Chest is a story of hope and inspiration. A young girl with a dream leads those around her to a better life through the uniquely transformative power of music and art, showing them that "food" for the soul and spirit is just as important as nourishment for the body.

            "The days will all be long and cold,
              If you nourish body but not soul.
              There's more to life than flesh and bone,
              We cannot live by bread alone."

From the Author:

The Painted Chest was the second book I both wrote and illustrated ( the first being The Stonehook Schooner ). I had come across a quote attributed to the Greek philosopher Socrates- "beware the barrenness of a busy life" and began to imagine a society where people worked so hard that they had forgotten how and where to find joy. With the discovery of an old painted chest and the help of a visionary child, they reconnect with the society they once were - where music and dancing and art and literature were as necessary to living a full and beautiful life as food and water.

From the Back Cover:

An old wooden chest lies buried in the mud. Who will unlock its secret?

"It was the only world she had ever know, But for all of its abundance of sun and rain, soil and crops, Maddie could not keep herself from longing for more."

The Painted Chest tells the story of the people of a small village - people who are haunted by the memory of a famine long past. Each day they clear, plant, and harvest the land, leaving little time for anything else. Without play or the joy of creation, their lives have become sombre and colorless.
One day, however, a young girl decides to act. Inspired by the dreams that will not leave her, and drawn by the discovery of a magical link to the past, Maddie changes her own life and the lives of those around her.
The Painted Chest is a story of hope and inspiration. It is for all those who truly believe that we cannot live by bread alone, and that the creation of "food for the spirit" can only enhance and enrich our lives.
