Pandora is a very nurturing little creature who lives alone in a comfortable home filled with hundreds of objects that people have left behind. She repairs what she can; she has the rare gift of "bringing lost and forgotten things back to life." But she is lonely.
Then one day an injured bird falls from the sky. Pandora does not know how to make this guest feel better so she just watches over it through the night. Here is an act filled with kindness and nurturing love. After days together, the visitor flies off but occasionally returns with gifts from faraway places. One day, however, the bird does not come back.
Pandora's heart is broken and her world turns gray. But then things begin to grow around her. The sun shines brightly and the sound of birdsong fills the air.
Writer and illustrator Victoria Turnbull has created an emotionally affecting fable about loneliness, nurturing, kindness, and renewal. It is designed for children from ages 4 to 7 years.
