Overview

One day, 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 grey little town is full of colour and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William and his town are changed forever. With breathtaking illustrations and spare, sweet text, this masterpiece about enjoying the beauty of nature is sure to become an instant classic.

Reviews

'With their first book, the Toronto-based Fan brothers have produced a masterpiece. The narrative is as subtle and delicate as the exquisitely cross-hatched illustrations and pastel colouring. Reminiscent of Maurice Sendak at his best, The Night Gardener has an irresistible old-fashioned charm.'--The Financial Times The Financial Times 'With illustrations full of warmth and an intricate attention to detail, this is a heartwarming story about community, friendship and the healing power of nature.'--The Huffington Post The Huffington Post
