Praise for Daniela Drescher:

“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.”
Armadillo on Pippa and Pelle in the Spring Garden

“I cannot recommend highly enough the gentle glowing and detailed illustrations which are a feast for the senses. The book is very robust and ideal for early childhood settings!”
Kindling on Pippa and Pelle in the Spring Garden

“Daniela Drescher's watercolor illustrations have such wonderful detail that you can feel transported to the seasons of the garden while you enjoy the problems, fun, and games of Griswald's life.”
Juno magazine on The Garden Adventures of Griswald the Gnome
