Do Grannies Have Green Fingers ★★★★★
In this delightful book, Alexander overhears his mum saying his granny has “green fingers”, after she wins yet another gardening award. Intrigued, he keeps a lookout for other examples of green fingers – and along the way notices some other colours (such as his red-faced neighbour when Tinster the dog buries a bone in the next-door garden). The illustrations are the real treat. Collages from Frandsen, made of photographs and illustrations, provide brilliantly fun and engaging visual narration.
