E.B. White Award for Picture Books

WINNER: The 2010 E.B. White Award for Picture Books

The Curious Garden
by Peter Brown
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Price: $16.99 HC
Pub date: 4/09
While out exploring one day, a little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world. One boy’s quest for a greener world… one garden at a time.
The committee said: “One of those books that shows what effect one person can have. The art and language works together beautifully; it’s inspiring, but not at all preachy. Bravo!”

Peter Brown will be visiting the Wellesley Free Library in September; stay tuned for details!
