In an Artist’s Garden
Step into the gardens of celebrated artists from around the world in this enchanting seek-and-find picture book of rhyming verse.
In an Artist’s Garden takes young readers on a magical journey over desert plains, along windswept coastlines and into the jungle, telling the stories of each artist and their garden. Visit Claude Monet’s famous waterlily ponds, David Hockney’s bright and colourful LA garden and Emily Kame Kngwarreye’s Country, Alhalkere. There are seaside gardens, kitchen gardens and sculpture gardens to explore. With all manner of creatures and objects to find, discover the delights of each artist’s garden and the inspiration found in nature.
‘When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment.’
I fell in love with this book the minute I saw it and now, as I write this review, I marvel all over again at its beauty and its unique presentation of these amazingly talented people. A must-have for libraries big and small and for ages 3 and up.
