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 back 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.

Review quote

'Beautiful illustrations combine with a heartwarming story to bring us a book which epitomises what picture books are all about.' * Parents in Touch * 'Just when you think she can't possibly exceed her last offering, Turnbull produces another sublime text with her wondrously muted and opulent illustrations. This picture book had us on a roller coaster of emotions, ending on an utterly joyous note and one which highlights the strength of relationships and the need to be surrounded by our loved ones.' * Picturebookblogger *
