  • 作者簡介
  • By the author-and-illustrator team of the bestselling The Library

    Lydia Grace Finch brings a suitcase full of seeds to the big gray city, where she goes to stay with her Uncle Jim, a cantankerous baker. There she initiates a gradual transformation, bit by bit brightening the shop and bringing smiles to customers' faces with the flowers she grows. But it is in a secret place that Lydia Grace works on her masterpiece -- an ambitious rooftop garden -- which she hopes will make even Uncle Jim smile. Sarah Stewart introduces readers to an engaging and determined young heroine, whose story is told through letters written home, while David Small's illustrations beautifully evoke the Depression-era setting.

    The Gardener is a 1997 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and a 1998 Caldecott Honor Book.

  • Sarah Stewart is the author of The Money Tree and The Library.

    Her husband, David Small, illustrated those books as well as many others, including George Washington's Cows and Fenwick's Suit. Ms. Stewart and Mr. Small live in Michigan.
