"There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten...." In the middle of a dark, lonely wasteland filled with old scrap metal lives an old man. Every night he dreams of a lively forest, full of sunshine, plants, birds, and animals. Every morning he wakes to gloom and bad weather. Then one day, he comes up with an idea to change things. But can an idea turn rain into sunshine? Can a dream make plants grow? The rich, detailed illustrations and lyrical text of "The Tin Forest" carry an important message of imagination and hope.
Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson have worked together on a number of splendid picture books. Their work has been hailed as exquisitely detailed . . . touching by "Publishers Weekly" and "infused with natural wonder, beautifully illustrated, and stunning" by Booklist. Ms. Ward and Mr. Anderson live in England.
