The Curious Garden, Peter Brown
One boy's quest for a greener world... one garden at a time.
While out exploring one day, a little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world.
This is an enchanting tale with environmental themes and breathtaking illustrations that become more vibrant as the garden blooms. Red-headed Liam can also be spotted on every page, adding a clever seek-and-find element to this captivating picture book.
I got an early copy from Little, Brown, to review. I absolutely adored this story and Lily was enraptured when I read it. The drawings are simple, yet elegantly beautiful. Liam's quest is one that we should all strive for. There is nothing wrong with a garden in the weirdest of places.
