The Last Garden

The Last Garden

(2006)
A novel by

 
Peaceborough has a unique treasure, the wonderful garden of St. Mungo's School. Started over forty years before by teacher Percival Sweet, the garden has been tended ever since by generations of loyal pupils. Now, though, it is threatened with destruction, destined to become a car park for the local shopping mall. If it belonged to the school all would be well, but it doesn't, it belongs instead to Horace Blackwell, owner of the neighbouring Shoe Polish Factory who intends to sell the land for a deliciously huge pile of cash. And no one seems to care. Except the Garden Prefects. Led by tenacious Magnolia Roundtree they uncover a sinister plot and must fight for what is right, never giving up, not even when threatened by their fearsome head teacher Prissy Skillet. Can Magnolia and her friends do something extraordinary that will capture the attention of an indifferent world and save the day? The Last Garden is a funny, exciting and topical story pitting greed against green and men against mungos.
