The Lovereading4Kids comment

Exquisite and fascinating illustrations beautifully capture the hopeful mood of this story about the power of dreaming. Living in a miserable grey world, an old man repeatedly dreams of colour and growth. Gradually his world begins to full up with colour, change and therefore hope.

Synopsis

Tin Forest by Helen Ward

There was once a wide wind-swept place, near to nowhere and close to forgotten...So begins this story that shows how, with a little love, even the most barren landscape can be a home to all sorts of life. Helen Ward, better known as one of our finest illustrators, has produced a poetic text, while Wayne Anderson has brought this fantastical world to life in his inimitable style.
