The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes

Last month I reviewed the wonderful ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes and her second book for Flying Eye Books is just as beautiful. The Little Gardener is a heart-warming tale about working hard on the things you love, even when things get tough.

Whatever Happened to My Sister by Simone Ciraolo
Flying Eye £11.99 (BOOK OF THE MONTH)
Simone Ciraolo has created a truly delicate and capricious tale about growing up and the love between siblings. Her illustrations are a charming mix of water colours and pencils which really allows the text to breath. A book that many will relate to and understand.
