Every spring the little girl who lives next door to Rosario helps him plant vegetables. One spring, Rosario plants a fig tree, which soon bears sweet purple fruit. But when fall comes, he bends it over and buries it in the ground. What kind of magic is Rosario performing? The next spring, on planting day, the little girl and Rosario make holes for tomato plants, push in stakes for beans and plant other vegetables. Then Rosario begins to unearth the buried fig tree. It looks dead, for sure. But one hot sunny day, a fresh green leaf appears. Inspired by her next-door neighbor, Charis Wahl has written a sweet and simple story about a little girl's first-hand experience with the magic of gardening. The story is complemented by Luc Melanson's gently humorous illustrations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] story of cross-cultural neighborliness." - New York Times

"Melanson's digital art has a charming oddness, capped by a witty scene of Rosario and his elderly Italian friends debating." - New York Times

"This sweetly thoughtful story explores life and the wonders of gardening, as well as the edifying nature of intergenerational friendships." - Booklist

"A child's wonder at the care it takes to make things grow and the joys of fresh figs make an engaging story." - Kirkus Reviews

"Perfect to introduce the wonder of growing things, this title is a recommended general purchase for all libraries." - School Library Journal


"Rosario lives next door.

He's a magician.

He doesn't pull rabbits out of hats or find pennies behind your ears. He's a garden magician."
