About the Author

Emma Giuliani is a graphic designer and illustrator living in Paris. Her previous books include Egyptomania and Welcome the Day.


"A graphic artist's view of a small, mixed garden's seasonal round, enhanced by flaps, inside views, and cut-paper flowers. In Giuliani's composed, quietly harmonious scenes, young Plum and her little brother Robin-both depicted as solid black silhouettes-tidy up their patch after its winter sleep, then at proper times sow seeds, repot plants that wintered over in the greenhouse, water and nurture seedlings, set up poles for beans and stakes for tomatoes, then at last, in autumn, gather ripe fruits and veggies before putting the garden back to bed... Elegantly illustrated, oversized album to fuel winter dreams and schemes. Visually and conceptually idyllic."
- Kirkus Reviews (STARRED REVIEW)
"Using a multitude of flaps that promote interactivity and lend an intimate sense of discovery to the text, Giuliani offers facts about flora and fauna phrased in accessible and scientific terms: in "Spring," a magenta bean's "seed coat or integument" folds back to reveal a "plumule or bud," while an adjacent flap discusses dormancy and germination. One by one, other flaps (shaped like a winter squash, a ground cherry) reveal the kind of glad surprises that a garden can provide; together, the contemplative text offers a growing season's worth of activities and cares."
