Industry Reviews


Review by Tanaya Lowden

With beautiful illustrations and rich, soft colours, Anna Walker’s Florette is sure to become a children’s classic.

When Mae and her family move to a new home, Mae is disappointed that they can't also bring along their garden. In her new city replete with crowded roof-tops, Mae misses her apple trees and daffodils. How will she cope?

This is a picture book I wish I could have read as a child. Everything about it is beautiful - the story, the illustrations, and the messages are so compellingly conveyed. It’s a book I easily could have reread again and again, getting lost in the lush, exquisite pages. Most importantly though, this book will teach your little ones about resilience in the face of change, a lesson you can never be too young to learn!
