Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

Brother and sister team Patrick and Emily Hruby collaborated on this charming little book. As kids growing up in a log cabin in the woods of Idaho, they were raised loving the abundant nature all around them. Emily often made up poetic stories for Patrick's imaginative drawings. As Los Angeles transplants, they each continue to pursue their respective passions for writing and illustrating. This is their first book together.


"Los Angeles based illustrator Patrick Hruby employs vibrant hues and interesting shapes ... his compositions are visually striking." --Grain Edit

"The bold, colorful pictures in 'Counting in the Garden' could easily adorn a shopping bag for a tony London department store. Making appearances both underground and above are earthworms, sunflowers, strawberries, watermelons, snails, tomatoes, and even thistles which, the author informs us, grew by accident." ForeWord Reviews"Los Angeles-based illustrator Patrick Hruby employs vibrant hues and interesting shapes ... his compositions are visually striking." Grain Edit"There's charm in the disproportionate perspective; the onion towers over the individual while he peers down, dwarfing the turnips growing below. Retro geometric shapes enhance the angled beauty. The quiet text benefits from spare descriptions. 'Six sweet strawberries, hanging from vines // Seven slipper snails, with different colored shells.' By alternating between counting text and wordless spreads, the book allows for moments of calm transition." Kirkus Reviews"
