Book Review


Pandora lives alone in a place of forgotten things. She builds herself a lovely home and spends her days fixing broken and lost things. One day a bird falls from the sky, but Pandora isn’t sure how to fix him. She cares for the bird and nurses him back to health. As he gains strength, he brings back seeds and twigs from other places. But then the bird leaves and doesn’t come back. Pandora is heartbroken, but little by little the seeds grow until the place of forgotten things becomes covered in flowers and greenery. She hears her friend’s birdsong and is reunited in their new beautiful home.
