Blurb: “William discovers that the tree outside his window has been sculpted into a wise owl. In the following days, more topiaries appear, and each one is more beautiful than the last. Soon, William’s gray little town is full of color and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William and his town are changed forever.”
The night gardener is an adorable story about an orphan boy and a mysterious stranger who creates wonderful topiaries overnight. The Gardener enlists William’s help and together they create more wonders. The heart-warming story is about friendship and finding purpose in life.
The art style is hand drawn, in a detailed sketchy style with bright pops of colour. The topiaries are really brought to life by the beautiful art.
I think children aged 3-6 would enjoy this book, particularly children who can relate to the story.
I would happily pay around £10 for this book as a beautiful gift for a child.
