On an island in Vietnam, a monk lives in a coconut tree, eating its fruit and playing with his friends, a cat and a mouse. All the while, a war is raging. One day, the monk decides to visit his country’s president. After all, if a man, a cat, and a mouse can live in harmony, why can’t a nation? But the hostile guards at the presidential palace throw the Coconut Monk in jail. Is there still a way for his message to be heard? Based on a true story, this charming picture book shows how unconquerable divides can be overcome through compassion and perseverance.
