About this title

Synopsis:

An exquisite coffee table bookthis volume incorporates ingenious design and gardening wisdom to showcase Anne Geddes' fanciful images. From pots to plots, in flowerboxes and fields, Geddes' unique photos of babies and children show readers the profusion of life and joy to be found in a garden. Readers see the wondrous transformation of buds to blooms, and caterpillars to butterflies; find adorable baby faces amidst petals and pods; see birds in the bath, bees abuzz, and all kinds of critters at rest and play. Full-color throughout.

Review:

Do you believe in fairies? If so, this book will delight you. "It wasn't produced for someone who isn't a believer in things magical," observes photographer Anne Geddes, who clearly is. What is also abundantly clear is that she appreciates the charm of babies and small children, and the role that fantasy plays in their young lives. Her tiny models become fairies, gnomes, sunflowers, water lilies, field mice, ladybugs, and peas in a pod in this amusing and endearing volume.
