's review

it was amazing

The curious garden is a clever and touching story of a young boy who lives in a society where most people spend their time indoors. But for Liam, who loves being outside, even on days when it's drizzly, he is always finding new and exciting things to do.

One day, while exploring, Liam stumbles upon some dying plants near an abandoned railway. Without thinking twice, he takes it upon himself to come to their rescue and become their gardener. Knowing nothing about gardening, Liam fumbles to get the hang of things, but, the plants are patient with him.

After a great deal of time, Liam's tireless efforts pay off. His garden is no longer just a "lonely patch of color." In fact, his plants are thriving so well that they decide to stretch out all over town. It's not long before their colorful petals inspire the neighbors to join in.

Years later, Liam is no longer the only gardener. His entire town has blossomed into something beautiful.
