Reviews

'With their first book, the Toronto-based Fan brothers have produced a masterpiece. The narrative is as subtle and delicate as the exquisitely cross-hatched illustrations and pastel colouring. Reminiscent of Maurice Sendak at his best, The Night Gardener has an irresistible old-fashioned charm.'--The Financial Times * The Financial Times *
'With illustrations full of warmth and an intricate attention to detail, this is a heartwarming story about community, friendship and the healing power of nature.'--The Huffington Post * The Huffington Post *
'This is a sumptuously illustrated, heart-warming tale of a sad town and a lonely orphan, both given new life by the kindness and skill of The Night Gardener. There is very little text, leaving the emotional impact to the gorgeous pictures, reminiscent of Levi Pinfold, Where the Wild Things Are and The Snowman. A beautiful, enchanting book with the feel of an instant classic.' * Book Trust *
'This is a fine story with different threads running under the surface and the illustrations are excellent, realistic and full of detail [...] a book to be treasured as well as read.' * Montessori Magazine *
