FOR YOUNG GARDENERS
The Night Gardener
Eric and Terry Fan Frances Lincoln Children’s Books, £12.99
In the spirit of Goodnight Moon and The Curious Garden
comes this stunning picture book filled with whimsy and creativity from brothers Terry and Eric.
William finds the tree outside his window has been sculpted into an owl. In the following days, more topiaries appear, each one more beautiful than the last. Soon, the boy’s grey little town is full of colour and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William and his town are changed forever.
A super book for youngsters (and oldsters) to enjoy again and again.
