Reviews

A 2018 New York Times and New York Public Library Best Illustrated Picture Book
A Boston Globe Best Children's Book of the Year


"Light-skinned with bobbed chestnut hair tucked behind her ears, Mae tries to cheer herself up, which will deeply impress young readers who couldn't imagine being transplanted (and perhaps seem even more admirable to those who have!)." --Kirkus, STARRED Review

"This quietly told and beautifully illustrated story will resonate with other children who have been uprooted, but hope to flourish in a new home."--Booklist

"A worthy addition to the canon of books depicting young gardeners transforming spaces and lives."--School Library Journal

"Walker's carefully drafted watercolors capture the charm of Parisian streets."--Publishers Weekly
