Summary

This gorgeously illustrated picture book opens to a detailed spread of a gray city. If you look closely, you can spot the tiny figure of a red-headed boy, Liam, walking down the street. THE CURIOUS GARDEN tells the story of how this young boy discovers a door that leads up to abandoned railroad tracks where he finds a forgotten garden. He cares for the plants and helps them flourish, and they gradually spread throughout the city, transforming it, bit by bit, into a lush, green world. With spare text and breathtaking illustrations, and a classic feel reminiscent of THE LITTLE HOUSE and MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL, this is a magical picture book about the power that one small person can have to transform the world.
