It's spring and Pippa and Pelle are getting their garden ready for the new year. They dig the earth and plant some little seeds.

In the spring sunshine the seeds soon begin to grow, bringing friendly ladybirds, caterpillars and butterflies to the garden. What delicious treats will Pippa and Pelle have to eat when everything is ready for harvest?

Daniela Drescher's unique illustration style will capture any child's imagination. This magical board book is full of seasonal details and is the perfect size for little hands.

(Ages 1 to 4 years)

“In gentle, child-friendly language, Pippa and Pelle express a loving relationship with the earth—their garden is visited by insects (‘our small friends’) and they happily share their abundant strawberries with the snails. The pencil and watercolor illustrations, showing their garden blooming with flowers and fruit, are bright and joyous.... A simple and lovely celebration of nature in springtime.”
