Pandora is a lone fox, living in a desolate land, where no-one ever comes to visit. Except that is, on one particular day, when something fell from the sky, broken.

But she nursed her unexpected guest back to health and soon, the bird was able to fly once again.

The bird would fly away but would always return. “Until the day he didn’t.”

“She thought her heart would break.”

This picture book had us on a roller coaster of emotions, ending on an utterly joyous note and one which highlights the strength of relationships and the need to be surrounded by our loved ones.
