The Lovereading4Kids comment

This lovely picturebook celebrates the pleasures of community (and vegetable gardens) in a satisfying story that has something of a fairy tale to it, while remaining totally down-to-earth. Daisy is friends with everyone on her street, but her neighbours never talk to each other. So when old Mr Hofmeister hurts his back and can’t dig his garden, it’s up to Daisy to come up with a plan. Her solution is to organise a digging party – with tea and cakes. Everyone comes, everyone makes friends, and her neighbours’ lives are all changed for the better. Angie Morgan’s artwork mixes watercolour and collage to great effect, bringing Magnolia Street vividly to life. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Daisy's Big Dig by Angie Morgan

No one really knows each other in Daisy's street. But when Mr Hofmeister falls ill, she is determined to help him out and get the neighbours involved. Invitations go out, hinting at buried treasure, and one special day the two Daves, the Lemming family, Mrs Benjamin and Professor Flowerdew all come together to dig the old man's garden and look for the treasure. And do they find treasure? Well yes, but not quite what anyone expected!
