little boy learns about the full and varied life of his Grandpa Green
by strolling through his grandfather's garden, which is full
of topiary trees that have been carved to represent a lifetime of
memories and remembrances. We won't spoil the ending, but the last page
is particularly fitting...and touching. We love Smith's unique,
whimsical illustrations and so will kids and adults of all ages.
starred review, School Library Journal said, "Visually intriguing and emotionally resonant, this is a book to
pore over and talk about. With each subsequent reading, it offers new
layers of meaning and visual connections." This book is a 2012 Caldecott Honor Book!
