Pandora lives alone, in a world of broken things. She makes herself a handsome home, but no one ever comes to visit. Then one day something falls from the sky
. . . a bird with a broken wing.
&nbsp &nbsp &nbspLittle by little, Pandora helps the bird grow stronger. Little by little, the bird helps Pandora feel less lonely. The bird&nbspbegins to fly again, and&nbspalways comes back-bringing&nbspseeds and flowers and other small&nbspgifts.&nbspBut then one day, it&nbspflies away and doesn't return. Pandora is heartbroken.
&nbsp &nbsp &nbspUntil things begin to grow . . .

Here is a stunningly illustrated celebration of connection and renewal.
Victoria Turnbull is an emerging star in the U.K. picture book world, winner of the British Association of Illustrators New Talent Award and a Kate Greenaway Medal nominee. She lives in East London, England.

Editorial Reviews

? Though she may have inherited a dreary world, Pandora's attempts to revitalize it will inspire readers who may be discouraged with humankind's negative effect on the planet. Bound to generate discussion among adults and children alike, this quietly stirring offering can be read on multiple levels: as a love letter to friendship, a warning against careless treatment of the environment, or as a testament to the power of hope." -SLJ, starred review ? "Turnbull's beautiful pictures are worth the proverbial thousand words? A valuable ecological message, deftly delivered. Incandescent." -Kirkus, starred review ? "As an artist, Turnbull (The Sea Tiger) has two crucial gifts: the power of imagination and the ability to make emotions visible." -PW, starred review "Gorgeous artwork from Kate Greenaway Medal nominee Turnbull uses soft pastels to show the young fox and bird forging their friendship. Children will delight in exploring and identifying the detailed "lost things" and contrasting them with the abundant beauty of the growing plants in this dreamy fable." -Booklist"
