Description

"Something was happening on Grimloch Lane. Something good." One day, William discovers that the tree outside his window has been sculpted into a wise owl. Each day, more topiaries appear, each one more beautiful than the last. Soon, William's grey little town is full of colour and life. And, though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William and his town are changed forever. With breathtaking illustrations and spare, sweet text, this masterpiece about enjoying the beauty of nature is sure to become an instant classic. A best-selling debut picture book about an orphan whose life is transformed by a mysterious night gardener bringing colour and life to his town.
