The Curious Garden
What a wonderful book!
THE CURIOUS GARDEN starts out with pictures of a city with almost no greenery or plant life anywhere. Then a little boy named Liam discovers a small patch of earth with a wilty flower or two in it. He decides to help the plants grow. He makes the patch bigger. He adds more flowers. He finds another place to continue his gardening. And another. And another. Until...well, you'll really have to take a look at it. It's worth it. The illustrations are magical, and the story left me with a sense of hope and beauty.
