Overview

Here is Sara Midda at her dazzling best as she turns the genius behind her international bestsellers, In and Out of the Garden and Sara Midda's South of France, to the universally shared emotions, charms, and mysteries of childhood.

Every page is a book unto itself. Whimsical little figures illustrate Table Manners ("Do not rummage through the dish to find the tastiest morsel for yourself"); Things You Are Supposed to Grow Out Of...; A Noise Brought on by Nature and How to Deal with It; and Behaviour Towards Various Creatures.

In a work that is both enchanting and revealing, Sara Midda wryly observes our adult imperfections. Not a drawing, not a word is untrue, not a moment untouched by a smile of recognition.
