The Night Gardener by Eric and Terry Fan - ADVISABLE

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!
