    A promising new children's series!

    The Munched-Up Flower Garden is the first book in the Troublesome Creek Kids Series.

    Liz Reilly and her friends live in Troublesome Creek and they never go looking for trouble, trouble just seems to find them.

    One day Liz decides to create a flower garden and enter it in the local contest at the annual picnic. However, before the contest begins, trouble wrecks havoc in the garden and Liz is convinced someone sabotaged her garden to prevent her from winning.

    Sallie is a four time champion, a fact that she never allows Liz, nor their other friends, James, Carolyn and Dean to forget. Liz doesn't know if Sallie would be so mean as to destroy her garden.

    While troubles brews, Liz must come to the realization that maybe her friends weren't really her friends afterall.

    This was a very entertaining children's book. The pages are full of rich and vibrant colours that any young one would enjoy. The characters almost leap off the page with the artistic touch of illustrator, K. Michael Crawford. Her blend of colours and lines are welcoming to view.

    I loved the message that the book portrays and the kids of Troublesome Creek are fun to read about. I think this is a great book to read to your children as they prepare for bed or for those afternoons when they want to cosy up to a story. They will come to love the kids and the troubles that follow them. The recommended reading age is those for children five to nine, but I think the younger ones would enjoy it also.

    The Munched-Up Flower Garden

    The Munched-Up Flower Garden is a MUST read from the first sentence to the last. Liz is upset that her flower garden has been munched-up by a no-good munchy goat. Beautiful illustrations and lyrical language mesh seamlessly to produce a joy of a book.

    Flower Lovers Beware!

    The Munched-Up Flower Garden is a humorous story about Liz,a little girl who grows beautiful flowers. She's hoping to win a blue ribbon for the best flower garden, but much to her dismay, another little girl, Sallie, comes by to brag about winning the blue ribbon the last four years. To make matters worse, a goat destroys Liz's garden. A twist to the ending keeping children turning the pages. This book extols the virtues of hard work in a fun-filled adventure that's sure to please. Richly-colored illustrations add to the delicious flavor of the book

    The Munched-Up Flower Garden is a winner

    Liz's day is off to a bad start. Her flower garden was headed straight for the blue ribbon winner's circle until a neighbor's goat decided to make it his dinner. This book is loaded with emotions, prose that reads like poetry, and humor. The supurb illustrations convey the emotions and humor, adding another outstanding quality to this picture book.

    The Munched-Up Flower Garden flourishes

    Hey everyone, if you like children's stories that have meaning and are beautifully illustrated, you'll like this one. Lizzie is a protagonist with pizzazz, and her story has a lot to say about hard work and positive 'gardenership'--as I understand it, this is the first book from a new series of books based on this Troublesome Creek?
