Free download ✓ The Flower å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ohn Light's enigmatic story is told with utter simplicity but resonates long after we finish reading this book His increasingly optimistic vision is hauntingly captured by Lisa Evans's beautiful and whimsical illustratio. This is a lovely picture book about a boy living in a dreary dystopian city He reads a forbidden book about flowers After searching the whole dismal city for pictures of flowers he buys one old pack of seeds Unfortunately the auto room cleaning system sucks up all his blooms His search for another picture of flowers takes him to the huge dust heaps outside the city where he discovers his dead flowers have taken up root and are flourishingThe illustrations are beautiful utilizing shades of grey with spots of colorThe main character Brigg seems to live alone and has a job in a library This is not really explained but one can assume this is the norm for some children in the futuristic dystopian setting He is a dear sensitive boy and it is heartwarming to see his joy in the flowers Parents that want to promote appreciation for nature and concern for the environment to their children might like this book

Free download ✓ The Flower å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Brigg lives in a small grey room in a large grey city When he finds a book in the library labelled 'Do Not Read' he cannot resist taking it home In it he comes upon pictures of bright vibrant objects called flowers He ca. The Flower is picture book that utilises simplistic language to address prominent themes subjectsThe story tells of Brigg a librarian who lives in a dull and dreary dystopian city where greenery and nature seems to be non existent One day Brigg comes across a set of books labelled do not read they were supposedly highly dangerous books However his curiosity is sparked and he cannot resist smuggling one of the books home with him Upon reading the book at home in secret he discovers flowers Brigg is intrigued by the beautiful pictures as has never before been exposed to what they call flowers He sets off on a hunt to try and locate any trace of a flower in his city showing a strong sense of hope At an old junk shop he spots and purchases a picture of a flower which in reality is actually a packet of seeds Brigg follows the instructions and plants the flowers inside a mug filled with dust as the earth When it seems like nothing would happen the flower blooms and fills Brigg with joy Regretfully one day when Brigg was not home the plant got sucked away and is nowhere to be seen Brigg is distraught so sets off again trying to search for another sign of a flower somewhere in the city The book draws to a close by him finding that his flower has died but has left behind hundreds of new green shoots among the heaps of dustThe book uses colour symbolism in which the city s dark hues could represent a possibly polluted future where people will not be familiar with natural life The flower portrays a symbol of hope to Brigg who has the motivation to search for something better The language use is simple but the choices of adjectives used throughout are interesting as have a significant impact on the meaning Motifs also appear within the pictures and add a further element of interest when looking closer into the images as a collective wholeThe eerie illustrations show the state of the future environment which exposes the problems with society and the over urbanisation of our planet However the book does depict a hopeful ending through the final image This image could usefully be studied by pupils who could make inferences on how the story continues based upon the final illustration in the bookI thoroughly enjoyed exploring this book
