A curious garden explores a city…

In Peter Brown’s picture book a curious young boy exploring an abandoned railway discovers a little patch of wildflowers and plants and decides to help them grow. Over time he coaxes them into a beautiful, ever-expanding and equally curious garden which wends its way through the city. The illustrations are wonderful in this beautiful story of nature persisting even in the most urban of settings. This pairs wonderfully with Rose’s Garden by Peter H. Reynolds (review).
