Where there is a dream hope can grow…

Can an idea turn rain into sunshine?

Can a dream make plants grow?

 The Tin Forest written by Helen Ward and beautifully illustrated by Wayne Anderson.

Is a story about a lonely man who lived in the middle of a junk yard, but always dreamt of a beautiful place full of lush green plants.

One day an old lamp in the garbage reminded him of a flower, so he begins to build a forest from the garbage. He even builds animals and birds.

A bird comes to visit one day, but leaves, and the man, so lonely, makes a wish.

What is the wish?

Will the bird come back?

Will his tin forest become a real forest?

Find out in this magical book.

The rich, detailed illustrations and lyrical text of The Tin Forest carry an important message of imagination and hope.
