Synopsis

The Tin Forest by Helen Ward

There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten that was filled with all the things that no one wanted. So begins Helen Ward's tale of the Tin Forest where an old man lives who tidies the rubbish and dreams of a better place. With faith, ingenuity and hard work, he transforms a junkyard into a wonderland in this poetic modern fable.
