Description - Paper-flower Girl by Margrete Lamond

2024 CBCA Shortlist – Picture Book The Paper-flower Girl creates elaborate flowers out of paper, but she has few customers. When the Giant from the Hill brings her to work for him, they soon discover they want very different things. Before long, the Paper-flower Girl is forced to create things she no longer recognises as flowers.
