We’ve drooled over this book for some time now having seen it’s launch in the US, so we were overjoyed to receive a copy from Frances Lincoln Children’s Books.
This, their debut picture book, is set to be an instant contemporary classic. The story holds an air of mysteriousness and intrigue, coupled with the sheer beauty of nature, it’s gently unfurling storyline will undoubtedly have any audience on the edge of its seat.
Our protagonist, William wakes one morning to a commotion outside. The once grey town is now alive with noise and colour. A wise owl has appeared, as if by magic. Quickly followed by a cat, a rabbit and a parakeet.
But who is creating these fantastical masterpieces and will William find out who The Night Gardener is?
This book is everything we’d hoped it would be, and more.
