A playful celebration of untamed nature, from the award-winning creator of The Night Walk, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book.
The Prickletrim family are very proud of their pristine garden, with its razor-straight edges, regulation-height lawn and perfectly shaped topiary. They LOVE nature - just so long as it is well ordered and properly managed. Then one day their long-suffering gardener can't stand their suffocating rules any longer and quits.
Free at last, the Prickletrim's garden explodes upwards and outwards, spilling into their house and every corner of their lives. The family realise they cannot control nature. Can they learn to live in their wild garden?
Quirky imagination and gentle humor weave their way through this delightfully distinctive picture book from Marie Dorleans, award-winning creator of 2021 New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book The Night Walk.
Marie Dorleans is an award-winning children's book author and illustrator from France. The Night Walk was the winner of the French literary prize, the Prix Landerneau, in the best children's book category, and a New York Times/New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children's Book in 2021.
