spring vividly to life.'
-- Outside in World
'In gentle, child-friendly language, Pippa and Pelle express a loving relationship with the earth -- their garden is visited by insects (''our small friends'') and they happily share their abundant strawberries with the snails. The pencil and watercolour illustrations, showing their garden blooming with flowers and fruit, are bright and joyous... A simple and lovely celebration of nature in springtime.'
'I cannot recommend highly enough the gentle glowing and detailed illustrations which are a feast for the senses.[The book is] of course, very robust and ideal for early childhood settings!'
