The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes

If you’ve not come across Emily Hughes before, you are in for a treat. Emily’s first book ‘Wild’ with Flying Eye Books was a best –selling hit! Check it out, it’s simply brilliant!

Equally fantastic is her latest picture book – The Little Gardener.

A story that reminds us to persevere no matter what

In this tale – there is a little gardener and his much treasured garden. He works and he works and he works at keeping on top of it. However, he just isn’t big enough for the task – or at least he doesn’t think he is.

In this picture book, Emily Hughes treats us to carefully designed and beautifully illustrated scenes that seem to be inspired by the intricate works of William Morris.

Each spread is rich in detail and bursting with magic and joy, for me Emily Hughes is one of the most exciting talents working with the picture book form.

Highly recommended!
