This beautifully told story follows Billy from early spring to late summer as he helps his grandpa on his vegetable patch. They dig the hard ground in early spring, sow rows of seeds, and keep them watered and safe from slugs. When harvest time arrives they can pick all the vegetables and fruit they have grown. Children will be drawn in by the poetry of the language and the warm illustrations, while also catching the excitement of watching things grow! This title is a beautiful portrayal of grandparent-child relationship. It is published to coincide with planting season. It includes endnotes with Grandpa's tips for children to grow their own vegetables. Artwork includes cross section of vegetables growing up through the soil.
About the Author
Stella Fry is a teacher with a love of bookshops and gardening. She has recently started an eco gardening club at her school. She has always written stories, and likes to work surrounded by the cluttered security of favourite objects, images and messages from her children. Grandpa's Garden is her first book and was influenced by her family's experience of keeping an allotment when her children were small, and by the generous advice given by older and more experienced neighbours. Stella lives in Kent with her partner and her younger daughter. About the artist: Sheila Moxley trained at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London. She creates her artwork with oil pastels and is best known for her greeting cards and children's books. After several years in London, she decided to move to Cornwall with her partner, two children and cat, and now she can see the sea from the window! Sheila has previously illustrated Elephant Dance for Barefoot Books.
