Varmints

 
The Tin Forest
Helen Ward, illustrated by Wayne Anderson
 

From Britain's Poet Laureate comes this captivating new fairy tale

"There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten that was filled with all the things that no one wanted." So begins Helen Ward's tale of the Tin Forest where an old man lives who tidies the rubbish and dreams of a better place. With faith, ingenuity and hard work, he transforms a junkyard into a wonderland in this poetic modern fable.
