Editorial Reviews

Review

"A quietly marvelous picture book... Echoing the themes of The Secret Garden, it is an ecological fable, a whimsical tale celebrating perseverance and creativity."―The New York Times

* "A quiet but stirring fable of urban renewal, sure to capture imaginations."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "The art is spectacular and the book might inspire children to engage in small projects to improve their own neighborhoods."
School Library Journal, starred review
