'A heart-warming story full of colour' The London Parents' Guide 'A charming community tale, splendidly complemented by the vibrant and decorative illustrations' Books for Keeps On most days Samuel looks out of the window of his flat and sees the familiar sight of the local box factory but one day he looks out and there are builders, demolition men and bull-dozers and slowly the factory is pulled down. And so begins a wonderful and heart-warming story about a boy and his grandfather - an old man whose memories and passion for plants encourage him to turn the local waste ground into beautiful gardens. This is a story about a community working together to make something very beautiful for themselves. Written in a strong, direct and lyrical style by the acclaimed and award-winning children's author Bernard Ashley.
