Product description

It’s got collage pictures and almost no words – but what strange story does this unique book tell? Look! First there’s a house in a street. But it’s a grey, dreary area. Who would want to live there? Luckily, one family in the street has a great idea. They buy some plants, and put them in the ground. One by one, the neighbours do the same. Now they’re planting grass, and trees, and lovely flowers in all the empty spaces. Watch in wonder as it all starts to blossom!

  • A remarkable wordless picture book full of hope and wonder
  • Explores how a dull urban landscape is transformed by nature
  • Celebrates the power of communities to create positive change
  • ALA Notable Book and Wilderness Society Award winner

“This book is inspirational… Talking about the pictures with toddlers would stimulate verbal skills and powers of observation, while older children can learn from it about time and nature and society, or make images of the scenes from their own windows. This book is ideal to stimulate art projects, classroom discussions and even neighbourhood initiatives.” The Sunday Times
