ITV have a project providing signed stories for deaf children. The Flower is one of those included. They are available to watch free on line. The story is presented as a simple animation of the pages from the book with a figure narrating the story orally and using sign language. I am sure that not only deaf children would enjoy seeing it and indeed other books available free at the site. If you’d like to look at it, go to:
Signed Stories Home Page - ITV Signed Stories
then View all adventure stories
and click The Flower or any other title from the list there.
In a grey city without flowers, Brigg finds a packet of seeds ...
"An allegorical tale with slight Orwellian undertones... There is more than a touch of genius at work in these ... illustrated pages, for they are imbued with characteristic simplicity of detail, yet have such tremendous aesthetic appeal. The storyline has a pleasing cadence, too. ... a charming and inspired storybook not to be missed."
Bernard M Jackson
