A wonderful, uplifting, and hopeful fable about perseverance and the difference one person (and one garden) can make in the world. Beautiful artwork and simple, lyrical prose. I especially like how the character of the garden itself is brought out in the story. Highly recommended.

Bravo Peter Brown! This book inspires children of all ages to open their eyes & hearts to the natural beauty growing in the most unexpected of places! The illustrations capture the imagination and inject humor into a very important message of loving & nuturing our Mother Earth! Makes a fantastic birthday or holiday present...pair it with a little spade, watering can & a few seed packets! PS-And it's printed on beautiful recycled paper!

I bought this book as a gift for two of my grand children (7yrs. and 2 yrs) The oldest loved the story and could read it out loud with little difficulty. Since she is very much into being "GREEN", and caring for our Mother Earth, she found it inspirational. The youngest one loved the pictures and enjoyed the story as well when read to her. It is now part of the night time ritual of bedtime. They have only had the book a few weeks, but both know it by heart This book has actually brought out their creativity in gardening as well. Its a sweet precious story and we truly are enjoying over and over and over again

Peter Brown's "The Curious Garden" is a beautifully illustrated story about a boy who gradually transforms his drab city into a lovely, green paradise. The lone outdoorsman in a city of couch potatoes, Liam first notices small plants growing in the cracks of a disused elevated railroad track. With time and care he nurtures them until the entire railway is a shiny ribbon of green through the smokey, grey city. This is wonderful enough, but then "The Curious Garden" gets positively fantastical. The enchanted plants flow out of their tracks and begin to transform all the surfaces of the city into a botanical wonderland. Rooftops, sidewalks, stopsigns and rubbish heaps sprout flowers, trees and vines. The illustrations turn this delightful notion into a visual feast. Peter Brown has crafted a whimsical, engaging and educational storybook that kids of all ages will love, and parents will be glad to read over and over again. - Mary Tills, Barnes and Noble Frederick

This is a lovely book to introduce your child to gardening and the concept of community. The illustrations are delightful. It inspired us to search our neighborhood for "curious gardens".
