A richly illustrated fable of hope, perseverance, and renewal

While wandering through a field of stumps that was once a forest, a boy collects twigs and sticks and leaves that remain and decides to create something new. He makes a figure—a leaf man—who inspires him to dream and invent, to plant the seed for a better world. Based on the ancient folklore of the "green man" as a symbol of renewal, lyrical text and immersive visual storytelling fills this uplifting picture book with optimism for the future.
