A book review on The Tin Forest, by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson.
Templar publishing first published this book in 2001. It is a fiction fantasy book. The theme is the importance of believing in your dreams to make them come true.
The story is set in a wide, windswept place near nowhere and close to forgotten, filled with rubbish. There is no information on the time, yet I would say round about ten years ago. The place is imaginary, since there is no country like that on this planet that I know of.
This tale is about an old man trying to build a tin forest out of a scrap heap. Will he succeed? Read the book to find out…
The characters are the old man, a bird and his mate. The old man, who is a lonely person, is the protagonist and the two birds, who are probably toucans, help him to make his dream come true. Other characters are the animals and birds who live with the old man at the end of the story.
I liked this book because it had lots of adjectives, was cleverly written and was full of some marvellous illustrations! The story made me happy and inspired me to never give up. I would recommend it to people of all ages, for it is such an amazing tale. I rate it 10/10!
