“Peter Brown gives us the story of a boy who sets out to brighten his dingy bit of the world through the magical, transformative act of gardening. Beautiful and offbeat, readers will certainly fall in love with this irresistibly curious corner of the world.”
— Meghan Dietsche Goel, Book People, Austin, TX

Description


This New York Times bestselling modern classic explores the perennial topic of environmentalism in an urban world, from the creator of The Wild Robot and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild
One boy's quest for a greener world... one garden at a time.

While out exploring one day, a little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world.
