Witty and inspiring, Allan Wolf's upbeat poems are poised to cultivate a new crop of gardeners, aided by Daniel Duncan's bountiful illustrations. There's a lot more to gardens than meets the eye! In this collection of buoyant poems filled with fun facts, young nature enthusiasts and budding gardeners are called on to help solve a mystery by the compost bin, join a Wild West-style standoff between some good bugs and a few bad ones, interview the sun to find out what happens when it drinks a glass of water, and learn the fancy names of plants to spice up dinner conversation. They'll be spurred to grab their own gardening tools, drop in some seeds, encounter a few insects, gather fresh vegetables, and find a whole lot of magic. Allan Wolf's playful poems and Daniel Duncan's whimsically detailed, welcoming illustrations combine in a charming celebration of the many wonders and lessons to be learned from a school garden. For further inspiration, engaging notes on the poems and an author's note on jotting down observations can be found in the back matter.

Allan Wolf is the author of many award-winning books for children and teens, including No Buddy Like a BookThe Day the Universe Exploded My HeadThe Blood-Hungry Spleen and Other Poems About Our Parts, and The Blanket Where Violet Sits. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina.
