this is a sweet book about the life cycle of a garden, based on the old childrens' rhyme 'the house that jack built'.
"these are the seeds
that sleep in the soil
all dark and deep in isabella's garden"
even though the illustrations are in wonderful colours - the plants and birds etc, we all here at the shop are troubled (and some of us a little frightened) by the weird children in the book:
all rosy cheeked, and
all with either blue or green eyes.
i don't understand! they all look the same!
