Review quote

'Clearly and delightfully told, this gentle story with lively characters and colourful illustrations is also packed full of information on how to grow a garden like Eddie's for yourself.' The contrast between the older boy, looking out curiously at the world, manipulating and changing it, and the me-centred toddler is beautifully done... There are some useful tips for budding gardeners at the back of the book || Garland has done her homework, and there are hard facts to substantiate her story, woven through the text, in the detail of the warm-hearted illustrations, and in an appendix adults will find helpful in supporting their curriculum planning || Sarah Garland never lets her educational message get in the way of an engaging story || Offers plenty of information in a gentle, accessible way.show more
