The Money Seed

Here's a few recent works; its a children's story called "The Money Seed".
I wrote this story in the second year of my degree and decided to revisit it this week.
Below shows the front cover and two artworks.

The Story:
Sophie finds a penny, and when her Mum tells her to look after it and that 'money doesn't grow on trees', she decides to plant it.
The 'money seed' never grows, but Sophie plants every coin she finds.
Meanwhile, a Magpie has been taking all of the shiny coins from Sophie's plant pots. Through guilt, the Magpie and
his friends build Sophie a magical 'money seed' garden with all of the shiny found ephemera that the Magpie has stolen in the past.

The moral? Don't take what isn't yours. Naughty Magpie.
