Although the Little Green Girl dreams of visiting far-off places beyond her garden's walls, she is a topiary creation, unable to leave. But for her gardener, Mr. Aster, the prospect of deviating from his daily routine is unimaginable. Try as she might, the Little Green Girl can't uproot herself and set off on her own. To realize her dream, she'll have to find a way to show Mr. Aster that it's possible to carry a bit of home with you wherever you go. In this touching homage to friendship for readers 4 to 8, Lisa Anchin's vibrant gouache and pencil illustrations depict a charmingly old-school British gardener and his surreal protégé in an idyllic garden estate and some recognizable landscapes worldwide.
