Clearly and delightfully told, this gentle story with lively characters and colourful illustrations is also packed full of information on how to grow a garden like Eddie's for yourself.


Eddie's Garden and How to Make Things Grow by Sarah Garland

What makes Eddie's garden grow? Earth, rain, warm sun, and all sorts of creatures! Eddie works hard in his garden - digging, pulling up the weeds and watering his plants. Soon the garden looks wonderful, full of tasty treats that will make his picnic with Lily, Mum and grandad the best one ever.

There are three titles in the Eddie series, perfect for children fascinated by making things...

Eddie's Kitchen
Eddie's Toolbox and How to Make and Mend Things


'Children will learn a great deal, but it's a lesson sprinkled with magic; a sense of potential wonders.' The Independent
