Little, Brown and Company: NY, 2009.
The Curious Garden is about a garden that brightens a very bland city. On a rainy day, a boy notices a spot of color on the abandoned, raised railway tracks. He encourages it to grow, and with a little tending it expands on its own, taking advantage of other unused spots, taking over the whole railroad track. With time more gardeners pop up all around the city.
The illustrations are such an amazing part of the story. Bright, crisp, cityscapes. With inventive garden spots including a scarecrow on a skyscraper, a tree house garden, windmills, and much more. I enjoyed the garden with a life of its own and the author's vision of gardens all over the city.
