Nino is spending summer vacation with his grandmother. It’s the first time he’s been there without his parents! His grandmother’s going to show him her “out-of-this-world garden” and the life that thrives there. Among flowers, vegetables, insects, and birds, in an explosion of colors and sensations, readers will follow the little boy in his explorations. This is a great and rare moment of sharing, of traditions being passed on, between Nino and his grandmother. Isabelle Rimasson’s writing is heartfelt, with a light touch, knowledgeable about each gardener and their age, whether budding or fully grown. It is brought to remarkable life in illustrations by Simon Hureau, the creator of the comic The Oasis.
