Chinese legend has it that the Money Tree is a kind of holy tree, which can bring money and fortune to the people, and that it is a symbol of affluence, nobility and auspiciousness. But what will happen if money in itself becomes an object of greed?

ALOER—THE MONEY TREE, written by authors Rhett and Talia Ogston, tells the story of a young boy who discovers a very strange looking tree in a forest near his home. To his absolute amazement, the tree is growing money. He tries to converse with the tree named Aloer, a money tree that has been sent from another galaxy (a planet called Ixis) to Earth to perform some good deeds in order to become a senior tree back on Ixis and to assist humanity with some of their own environmental and emotional issues.

This goodwill mission sounds straightforward but Aloer discovers the inhabitants of Earth may not have the same idea. In fact, some humans do not care for the environment at all and even wish to destroy it to make money. What can Aloer do all alone? Can the young boy and Aloer work together to overcome the issues that the world faces today?

ALOER—THE MONEY TREE is a colorful, entertaining picture book that vividly illustrates to readers the evils of greed and the destruction of the environment. Likewise, this story will teach them the value of money and doing some good deeds with it, as well as the importance of taking care of the environment for planet Earth’s own survival.
