This wonderfully insightful and brilliantly illustrated book on gardens and gardeners will provide hours of absorbing fun while introducing young readers to the joys of planning, planting, and harvesting. In vibrant watercolors Vincent Grave shows us how there's something happening every month in the Big Garden. Renowned landscape designer Gilles Clement's lyrical text gently teaches young readers not only what's involved in planning a garden, but how plants, insects, and humans interact all year long to make the garden thrive. Along the way, we witness a forest of mushrooms, the miracle of eggs, and the incredible universe found in a single flower. In every picture, tiny gardeners busy themselves among the leaves, seeds, and earth. Fascinating, heartfelt, and elegantly produced, this book celebrates the deep connection between humans and nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Grave's incredibly inviting and witty watercolors capture activity in a well-tended backyard and amplify the poetic text by landscape designer Gilles Clement...Regardless of your plant knowledge, the book's content is enough to encourage everyone to kneel down in the dirt and hunt for microscopic beings, and to see the world from an ant's -- or artist's -- point of view." -The Oregonian

"Don't let its title fool you; this oversize picture book--originally published in France--is about much more than a garden...This unconventional tour of the world around us issure to sow environmental awareness and curiosity galore in readers of all ages." -Booklist

"I especially think A Big Garden is a sweet book to share and read with a child. It's written and illustrated from a totally fanciful perspective. Overall, it's a very artsy book that any gardener would love." -Ciao! Newport Beach
