Pandora - Victoria Turnbull

Summary: Pandora lives alone, in a world of broken things. She makes herself a handsome home, but no one ever comes to visit. Then one day something falls from the sky . . . a bird with a broken wing. (image and summary from goodreads.com)

My Review: I attend a book conference every year that focuses on books for young readers, and each year, aside from hearing from children's book authors and illustrators, we are given a spotlight of new books that have come out.  Pandora was one of them.

It's a gentle story about being broken and alone, and then finding a sprig of hope, in Pandora's case, a little bird with a damaged wing.  She works hard to care for and mend this little creature and, in turn, the bird itself leaves her a greater gift.

Being a picture book, this review is a short one, and all I can say is you need to check this one out.  Aside from the beautiful little story, the art itself is so gorgeous.  Pandora's world is well crafted, her character design soft and welcoming, and the ending pages lovely.

My Review: Four Stars

For the sensitive reader: Nothing offensive
