The Night Gardener – Terry Fan & Eric Fan

This one was another hit with the kid, which is surprising as he’s not usually into stories. This book is about a gardener who sneaks out in the night and creates beautiful topiaries on his street in the spring time.  My little one really enjoyed the surprising animal shapes that the trees and shrubs became, he also enjoyed the moon illustrated on the pages as he’s super into space. The gardener eventually gets caught, but the outcome isn’t what my kid expected which kept the story interesting. Wonderfully illustrated with rich dark colours, this soothing tale is a good one to settle down with at bedtime.
