Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Australian photographer Geddes (The Twelve Days of Christmas, 1995) is well known for her, well, strange pictures of babies. Now she sets the tots Down In The Garden ( Sept. 15, 1996; 160 pages; ISBN 1-55912-017-7). In full-page color photos (even some gatefolds), we see babies as pea pods, babies in cocoons, one newborn with butterfly wings resting on a mushroom, babies in flowerpots with bouquets on their heads. Mostly, all you see of them are their baby faces: with happy, isn't-this-a-riot expressions; astonished, how-did-I-get-in-here expressions; and, occasionally, perplexed, how-do-I-get-out-of-here expressions. A sweet bouquet of babies.

    Magical Organic Baby Fantasies!

    Ms. Geddes fills her large, oversized color pages with stunning pictures of a whimsical garden populated by babies. Her tiny models appear as fairies, flowers, insects, birds, and other small animals in the garden. Her imagination will transform the way you see babies . . . and gardens forever. You'll be glad to have experienced her magical touch. The images are enlivened by simple texts of a few words just to help create a mood or a thought. The compositions are quite elaborate. One contains dozens of children dressed up in worm outfits, and then transposed onto an image of them all in tunnels underground in the garden. What an amazing effort this must have taken! One of her presentation techniques is to have a photograph inside a photograph. For example, there is a two page spread of a basket. Then, you can unfold the middle of the basket to reveal its babyish contents! In another place, she plays peek-a-boo with you by hiding one image within the photograph under a flap which you can open. When you do, the photograph's meaning totally changes. As wonderful as her imagination and compositions are, I think her finest gift is to capture the baby's personality while awake. The quality of the reproductions is extremely high, particularly considering that she is working with squirming infants in many cases. Here are my favorites in the book: Moth Orchid Triplets; Monica; Christopher; Aisha, Tayla and Grace; Wet Sparrow; Magnolia Bud; Sarah; Potting Shed; Starring Triplets -- Jim, Flora and Pearl; Window Planter; Strawberry Planter; Canterbury Belles; Ruby; Tea Pot, Watering Can and Milk Jug; Birdhouse; and Jessie. This book would make a wonderful gift for expectant parents. They would suddenly feel their budding love for the developing baby evolve in new ways. After you enjoy this book, consider where else a little magic and a dash of fantasy can create good feelings that will lead to more love and caring. How can you add those elements? Enjoy the perpetual freshness of birth and youth around you! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution

    Excellent Book!

    I'm a college student and this book was given to me as a gift! I hadn't really gotten into Anne Geddes that much and so I wasn't aware of her amazing pictures! Because of this book, I have grown to love Anne Geddes art--especially in this colorful book! I wish I could frame every page because they are just beautiful! I share this book with many of my friends.
