The Lovereading4Kids comment

Lisa Evans has been selected as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators Award in 2008. This is a deceptively simple yet haunting story, beautifully and mysteriously illustrated. Its setting is a bleak future metropolis where flowers no longer exist. However, but for the determination of one boy who sets off a chain of events no one would have seen the beauty of flowers again.

Synopsis

The Flower (Illustrated by Lisa Evans) by John Light

When Brigg discovers a book in the library labelled 'Do Not Read', he cannot resist taking it home. In it, he comes upon pictures of bright, vibrant objects called flowers. He cannot find flowers anywhere in the city, but stumbles instead on a packet of seeds. This sets off a chain of events which bring about unexpected results.

“Lisa Evans’ illustrations have a unique quality which captures brilliantly the poignancy, the bleakness and the final floral optimism of the text.” The School Librarian

“A poignant book, simply written and beautifully illustrated.” Gervase Phinn
