Reviews:
"A curious boy's discovery of a tiny garden in an otherwise gray and dismal city leads to amazing changes...Brown's acrylic and gouache scenes are cleverly animated and accompanied by a lively musical track." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
"Ambient background sounds (falling rain, snipping pruning shears) and David Mansfield's jaunty music (harmonica, violin, and other instruments) accompany iconographic and animated images that pop with color." - Booklist
"Highly recommended. Editor's Choice." - ****, Video Librarian
