Big PB Planet applause for The Curious Garden by Peter Brown (Little, Brown and Company Books for Young Readers, 2009). Liam lives in a city without trees, gardens, or greenery of any kind. It's so drab and dreary, nearly everyone stays indoors. Except Liam, who explores. And one day, in his explorations, Liam comes across a straglly garden that needs his help. Beautifully told and illustrated with Brown's fantastic images, it's a moving testament to the power of one person to change their world.
