Open the gate and crunch down the path to reveal a garden buzzing with life in this lyrical, interactive peep-through board book. Children can peek through the pages to reveal all of the things that make up a garden: from the birds singing in the trees and the insects scuttling in the grass to the growing plants and rippling pond. The gorgeous illustrations combined with a novelty board book format make this a wonderful introduction to nature for young children. Louise Greig is an award-winning poet and a children’s picture book author with a unique, lyrical voice. Her childhood was filled with animals, the poems of Robert Louis Stevenson and picture books by iconic children’s writers such as Margaret Wise Brown, Charlotte Zolotow, Ruth Krauss, Maurice Sendak, Astrid Lindgren and Tove Jansson. Her debut picture book for Egmont, The Night Box, has been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, the Association of Illustrators Award (AOI), the Teach Primary Book Awards and the Klaus Flugge Prize. Louise lives in Aberdeen and is also the director of a dog rescue and re-homing organisation. The wild solitude of Scotland and the beauty of nature remain strong influences in her life. Suzanne Barton graduated with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, where she worked on her first picture book, The Dawn Chorus. This was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, subsequently selected by BookTrust for the Bookstart Treasure Pack and was read by Eve Myles as a CBeebies Bedtime Story. Suzanne has been working as an illustrator ever since. Suzanne illustrated Robin’s Winter Song which was nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway medal. Her work has been translated into several languages.
