Rose's Garden by Peter H. Reynolds


Rose's Garden by Peter H. Reynolds

This is an enchanting modern fable for dreamers of every age, from bestselling author-illustrator Peter H. Reynolds. After travelling the world in her fantastic teapot, Rose is ready to put down roots. A neglected corner of a busy city is the perfect place for Rose to plant the garden of her dreams. But the flowers won't grow. As Rose waits and hopes, the story of her extraordinary patience begins to spread, bringing a crop of visitors and a very unusual garden...This is a heartwarming story in which Rose brings colour and life to a downtrodden urban area. This title is inspired by, and dedicated to, the late Senator Edward Kennedy's mother, Rose, to celebrate the opening of the urban park project in her name in Boston, Massachusetts.


Peter H. Reynolds poignantly captures my mother's enduring spirit in Rose's Garden. May this powerful story... plant fresh seeds of hope and service for generations to come. (Senator Edward M. Kennedy)
