The Gardener by Carrie Stanton

The Gardener by Carrie Stanton is a whimsical tale packed full of excitement. Written in a fun, rhyming style, readers are taken on an amusing and imaginative adventure. From pirates to ogres and so many different things in between, children learn that in a daydream, the possibilities are endless. While the story serves as a lovely source of entertainment, it also really encourages readers to always use their imagination. The illustrations by James Pantuso help to bring the seemingly impossible situations to life and are well-suited to the creative nature of the story.

The Gardener is a delightful, energetic read for children of all ages.

The Gardener is filled with a plethora of wordy goodness and illustrations that will entertain anew with each telling and retelling of this story. ENGAGING AND EXCEPTIONAL!”
