Foreword Reviews

On the Other Side of the Garden

Left with an unfamiliar grandmother and only a vague explanation, a young girl wanders the grassy farm at night, befriending an owl, a mouse, and a frog as she gradually accepts her new home, so different from life in the city with Mum and Dad. Her feelings of confusion, loneliness, and fragile hope for tomorrow will resonate, while shaded artwork lends a dreamy, twilight quality, with splashes of color slowly growing with the dawning of the day.
