PB Planet Spotlight: Max's Magic Seeds

Big PB Planet applause for Max's Magic Seeds by Géraldine Elschner, illustrated by Jean-Pierre Corderoch translated by Charise Myngheer (minedition, Penguin Young Readers Group, 2007). Max receives an unusual present from his favorite uncle, Botanist Bill: a large potato sack full of flower seeds! Uncle Bill promises that if Max secretly scatters the seeds on his way to school, the walk will soon be much more interesting. When beautiful flowers appear all over town, the entire community is happy. A wonderful "little efforts can do a lot" story, with charming and uplifting illustrations. Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!
