This beautifully told story follows Billy from early spring to late summer as he helps his grandpa on his vegetable patch. They dig the hard ground, sow rows of seeds, and keep them watered and safe from slugs. When harvest time arrives they can pick all the vegetables and fruit they have grown. Children will be drawn in by the poetry of the language and the warm illustrations, while also catching the excitement of watching things grow!

Ab0ut the author: 

Stella Fry is a teacher with a love of bookshops and gardening. She has recently started an eco gardening club at her school. She has always written stories, and likes to work surrounded by the cluttered security of favourite objects, images and messages from her children. Grandpa’s Garden is her first book and was influenced by her family’s experience of keeping an allotment when her children were small, and by the generous advice given by older and more experienced neighbours. Stella lives in Kent with her partner and her younger daughter.
