LoveReading View on Pandora

Victoria Turnbull is a very gifted picture book creator and Pandora is a beautiful story of friendship, hope and renewal. All alone, in a land of broken things, lives Pandora, a little fox. She spends her time gathering and repairing what she can and makes a lovely home, but no-one comes to visit until one day a little blue bird falls from the sky. Pandora keeps the bird safe, slowly nursing it back to health and when it flies away again she thinks her heart will break. But the bird returns, and by then Pandora’s world has been transformed. Colour floods the delicate illustrations as Pandora’s happiness grows, and with her velvety paws, soft black ears and expressive tail, she should become a favourite character. ~ Andrea Reece

Pandora Synopsis

Pandora lives alone, in a world of broken things. She makes herself a handsome home, from all that people had left behind, but no one ever comes to visit. Then one day, something falls from the sky...a bird with a broken wing. As Pandora nurses the bird back to health, it begins to fly away each day, bringing a seed or small plant with him. Then one day, the bird doesn't come back. Pandora is heartbroken. However, day by day, things begin to grow...

This is a stunning fable of hope and regeneration from critically acclaimed artist Victoria Turnbull.
