Overview

In the Garden is an enchanting children's book about the delights of planting and sowing. Told from the perspective of a young boy, and illustrated in lush colors reminiscent of a blossoming garden, it beautifully conveys the magic, mystery, and wonder of a growing season.

Witness the exciting and ever-changing world of a backyard garden through the eyes of a young child, as he plants a simple patch of dirt with a variety of vegetable seeds, pretty flowers, and a few of his favorite toys. Join in the fun as the little boy stomps through puddles, meets slimy slugs and beautiful butterflies, enjoys tasty treats fresh from the garden, and best of all gets lots of hugs and kisses. Before long, everything in the garden has grown bigger-even the little gardener! Inspired by her own child's gardening adventures, author and illustrator Peggy Collins charms readers with cheery, colorful artwork and endearing text that perfectly captures a child's unique view of the growing world around him.

Peggy is a graduate of the illustration program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. Though she has dabbled in all sorts of media, she now works primarily in gouache, pencil crayon, and ink. She lives with her family in Ontario, in a crooked little house beside a winding river with a luscious little overgrown garden. In the Garden is her first book as both author and illustrator.
