A gorgeously illustrated story about appriciating wildness in all its forms, showing the importance and joy of gardening.

"Absolutely lovely. I love the way it gently demonstrates the importance of diversity in ecosystems (& communities) with wonderful bright illustrations of a flourishing and not-so-flourishing garden. I especially love the idcidental inclusion of hearing aids on Ana, our gardener!" - Caroline Fielding, Librarian
