It is contemporary, treasure hunt tale of a young woman’s journey across the world to find the magic tree that fulfills every wish. In favor of learning by traveling, student Magda breaks from the confines of conformity and quits her formal studies to pursue her dreams on her own terms, maintaining her authenticity by using intuition over reason. A fateful encounter with a wealthy Chinese man sets her on a mission to find the wish-fulfilling tree, which is told to help her achieve long-lasting happiness and prosperity. As it turns out, the magic tree is the alternative to formal education, religion, and medicine; as well as to Holy grail, Philosopher’s Stone, Golden fish, Aladdin’s lamp… There is a catch; the tree is guarded by ferocious goblins (embodiments of destructive emotions and attitudes) that need to be tamed, not killed, by special gizmos (virtues). On her journey that turns into a spiritual odyssey Magda tries to fulfill her mission by mastering the gizmos and taming the goblins in far and exotic places, in encounters with strangers, in peculiar circumstances, exceptional surroundings, in celestial spheres and mystifying tales, until her quest takes her finally to a place where everything is possible – the fourth dimension. Her decade-long treasure hunt is set against the backdrop of a dozen countries around the world. On her quest she is confronted with all kinds of setbacks, testing her resolve; falls into the hands of goblins and is often challenged, constrained and put in extremely difficult situations, where she needs to be resourceful in finding solutions. Using her virtues, imagination and intuition, believing everything is possible and paying much attention to the world around her, which serve as omens guiding her towards her goal, young Magda becomes a high-flyer in her own right, spinning unfavorable circumstances into riches.
This novel inspires young adults to take advantage of their inborn virtues to make own dreams come true. We are told that education is the key to success, but this book challenges that, proposing that rather the virtues are the key to success and happiness. It is particularly useful to all the young people having difficulties with learning and to the outsiders, because it offers an alternative through which anyone can achieve well-being in life, despite poor grades or lack of education.
