Pandora lives alone, in a world of broken things. She makes herself a handsome home, from all that people had left behind, but no one ever comes to visit. Then one day, something falls from the sky... a bird with a broken wing. As Pandora nurses the bird back to health, it begins to fly away each day, bringing a seed or small plant with him. Then one day, the bird doesn't come back. Pandora is heartbroken. However, day by day, things begin to grow... This is a stunning fable of hope and regeneration from critically acclaimed artist Victoria Turnbull.
