"It's simple and hugely satisfying to "grow" a global garden just by pulling a few tabs ... Everywhere, something we need is being grown in this busy book, which is attractive and useful in equal measure" -- Julia Eccleshare Guardian "The Global Garden is a super read. It really is a beautifully put together book: well-written and fact-filled as well as entertaining and engaging" -- Anne Fine "The Eden Project in Cornwall takes on new life in this glorious combination of lift-the-flap, turn-the-wheel, and pop-up book ... a beautiful presentation accompanies a bounty of surprises" The Good Book Guide "The creators have done their homework and, crucially, galvanised the material to make it entertaining for all ages" -- Christina Hardyment Independent "An ebulliently creative picture book" -- Kate Kellaway Observer
