Fan, Eric and Terry The Night Gardener. PICTURE BOOK. Simon and Schuster, 2016. $18.
Something extraordinary is happening on Grimloch Lane. Who is sneaking in at night and creating the beautiful topiaries up and down the street? William, a boy from the orphanage may know. No matter what happens, William does know that he and his street have been changed for good – for the better.
This is the first book for both of the Fan brothers and I can only hope that they keep on writing and illustrating. The winsome illustrations are reminiscent of classic illustration and the story line is a charmer. Kudos to whomever decided this was worthy of publishing!
