"World War XXII, as everybody knows, brought about the collapse of civilization...Then one day, a young girl who had never seen a flower chanced to find the last one in the world..." 
Powerful, entertaining, thought-provoking, and hope-restoring. What happens after that is remarkable and renews the spirit. Through the act of taking care of this flower, together, the young girl and the boy who helps her, begin to bring the good back into the world. When war comes into our living rooms and is on every channel, there's no way for children to escape its ugliness. In this time of uncertainty about what's going on in the world, this parable offers hope.
