Inside the hedge at 55 Waverly Street is a very special, secret place. The little boy who lived on the street loved going there and what he did there. But a day came when he had to get bigger; that was the rule. He got so big and so busy that the wonderful yard inside the hedge became just a memory-until many years later, on one strange, wonderful night. . . .
An allegory for adults as well as children, 55 Waverly Street is a simple, universal fable about finding again the place where we do what we were made, meant, molded to do, despite a world designed to keep us from what's imprinted on our deepest spirits. Its simple words and marvelous, full-page illustrations will captivate young imaginations, and its wise and moving message will speak eloquently to adult hearts.
