About this title

Synopsis:

Grow, Watermelon, Grow is a spirited and humorous miniature memoir for children but it is also for the child in all of us. It is a journey of a little girl and the planting of her treasured watermelon seeds. But the real cultivation is that of belief, confidence, and trust in one s self persevering and the magical reward of that perseverance.

A distinct personality sets the book apart. The cover art immediately draws you in with its directness and unusual quality. The curious face, half-hidden by watermelon looks out at the world and encourages it to look back. As one turns the pages, one sees richly-colored end pages, done with real watermelon rind and mono prints from actual watermelon slices. The story unfolds through a first-person narrative, the author s voice, as direct and honest as the illustrations: filled with fantasy, culture, humor and sensitivity. In short, this is a highly individual interweaving of words and art that has the capability of touching people of all ages and backgrounds.

About the Author:

Charlotte Noruzi was born in Tehran in 1970. Seven years later, when she was still just a little seed, her family uprooted and replanted themselves in a small town called Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. This is where the watermelon story takes place. There she grew and grew to be an artist, illustrator and designer, and now makes New York City her home.

Charlotte's creative endeavors include being a member of Studio 1482, an artists cooperative. She is also a professor of design and illustration in the undergraduate Communications Design department of Pratt Institute, New York.
