Illustration workshop / Meeting with Laura Carlin

A girl lives in a bleak, gray town. When she steals an old woman’s bag filled with acorns, the woman asks her to plant the stolen goods. The girl decides to fulfill her wish. A little later, the town and its inhabitants are hardly recognizable. In concise language and artfully arranged illustrations, the picture book tells of the contagious power of hope and the potential of every human being to change the world for the better.
