PB Planet Spotlight: The Curious Garden

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. Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!

I hear you, Heather! Peter Brown is a genius! (He's a really nice guy, too--I just met him last weekend. I'll have to post about it. Hope the picture came out!) Thanks for posting, and welcome to the Planet!

OOH! I totally forgot! (It's from all the Sharpie marker fumes I'm undoubtedly inhaling when doing blackout poetry!) Hey, PBnauts, be sure to check out Heather's totally witty blog, Frolicking Through Cyberspace, on my blogroll!
