In a barren, gray city, Rose dreams of gardens full of red and yellow and blue flowers.
Rose and her brothers mock crazy old Birdman, who sits in his wheelchair all day feeding seeds to the pigeons. Birdman says pigeons are beautiful, but Rose dreams of gardens like the ones she sees in her library books. So when Birdman fills Rose's hands with slick, black seeds and tells her they are magic, she plants the seeds outside her window and waits. Soon, like Birdman promised, a garden appears before her eyes--a singing flurry of red and yellow and blue, drawn to Rose's window by seed magic.
Jane Buchanan's rhythmic prose and Charlotte Riley-Webb's vibrant and striking illustrations bring to life a story of community, connection, hope, and unexpected beauty.

Review quote

"With a minimum of words, characters become real, and the grimy city becomes a place of hope. Strong acrylic colors and loose, broad brushstrokes reverberate with the rhythm and hope heard in the text. Together with brevity of words and motion and vibrancy of rhythm and color, the text and paintings create an unexpected joie de vivre. This is a must-buy for all libraries."
