There is barely a moment's peace for the Orange Tree!

There is barely a moment’s peace for the Orange Tree! It barely has time to grow into a beautiful tree when birds take away its fruit, a caterpillar eats its leaves, and a farmer arrives with large shears…

But enough is enough, and one day the Orange Tree decides to show everyone what it feels like to be cut up and eaten. When the police arrive, it begins a daring escape across rooftops, on escalators, by boat, and even boards a plane that drops him off on a beautiful island.

And so, what happens to the new-born Orange? Well, it seems that everyone has learnt something from this story, and Andrea Antinori also tells us: ‘Never disturb a growing orange!’
