Beautiful story about a boy who helps a garden thrive in the unlikeliest of places. As I was reading I wondered why the illustrations and story felt so familiar despite its somewhat fantastical setting, and then once I read the author's note I realiz...more

Early readers are difficult books for me to bond with. I wasn't feeling much attachment to any of the characters in this story. It had potential but fell flat for me.

Truman Capote
“To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the music the words make.”
Truman Capote, Truman Capote: Conversations

John Green
“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
John Green

Tom Stoppard
“I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you might nudge the world a little or make a poem that children will speak for you when you are dead.”
Tom Stoppard, The Real Thing: A Play

Mark Twain
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
Mark Twain, Mark Twain: The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
