This book was written the author tells us,

 

“as a reminder of how wonderful the world can be, and a warning of how barren we can let it become.”

 

The book is listed as a Picture Book. Indeed it has beautiful detailed art work which complements and interweaves with the text, but it is not a small child’s book. All ages from primary school children to senior citizens will understand and empathise with the story.
