 Cover illustration by Songdej Thipthong for the storybook "The Nalikae Tree."
   Dear little child, listen to me,      There was once a Nalikae Tree,      Alone it stood amidst the hot wax sea,      Untouched by rain,       Unthreatened by thunder,      It can be reached only by those       Who go beyond merit and matter.    Excerpt from "The Nalikae Tree." Thai lullaby adapted into English by Bhusaba Taecharoen and Minette. Illustration by Niroj Jarungjitwittawat.
  “You can get there by making a bridge,” said her mother.    “What kind of bridge?”    “A bridge of your thoughts. Every thought of kindness will bring you closer to the island. ..."  Excerpt from "The Nalikae Tree." Illustration by Sudwadee Suwan.
   "A high buzzing sound began in the darkness. It grew louder and louder, and turned into a massive swarm of black bees. They became so loud that they seemed to scream in her ears. "  Excerpt from "The Nalikae Tree." Illustration by Somyot Kamsang.
 "  As she sank in the wax sea, she saw something else move nearby. It was a black bee. It had gotten caught in her dress and fallen with her into the sea. It also struggled for its life."   Excerpt from "The Nalikae Tree." Illustration by Lipikorn Makaew.
 "  Suddenly, everything froze. The crashing waves stopped their motion. All sound ceased. "  Excerpt from "The Nalikae Tree." Illustration by Oak Chakrapan Suwanphanich.
  "Child, look in the palm of your hand."   Excerpt from "The Nalikae Tree." Illustration by Songdej Thipthong.
