"This is a fantastic book, an inspiration to all children to get stuck in to the garden" - Peter Cundall
Here is a book to inspire children to discover the joy and wonderment of growing vegetables from seed. It’s a meaningful story, describing how Billy moves to Bruny Island in Tasmania and with his father helps to build his garden and share its bountiful produce. The informative text, enhanced by rhymes, will inspire all who read it. Delightful illustrations by Tasmanian artist Lois Bury bring the characters and story to life.
This book has the power to engage young minds in the fun and sense of fulfilment that a vegetable garden can provide. As Billy says, ‘everyone can have a green thumb’.
