Staff Reviews

The Night Gardener appears each evening and sets up shop to trim, prune and sculpt a tree in the shape of an animal. He inspires a young boy and a community and gives them all the tools to change and come together. Both adults and kids will appreciate the animals, the art and the magical and colorful kindness of the gardener. This is a beautiful book.  ~Kate Brasch

In the spirit of Goodnight Moon and The Curious Garden comes a stunning debut picture book filled with whimsy and creativity from brothers Terry and Eric Fan.

One day, William discovers that the tree outside his window has been sculpted into a wise owl. In the following days, more topiaries appear, and each one is more beautiful than the last. Soon, William's gray little town is full of color and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William--and his town--are changed forever.

With breathtaking illustrations and spare, sweet text, this masterpiece about enjoying the beauty of nature is sure to become an instant classic.
