Product Description
A lyrical picture book which explores the growth and continual change that goes on in Isabella's garden. Told with great warmth, this is a comforting story about the cycle of life in its many forms.

Following the well known structure of The House That Jack Built, Isabella's Garden tells the tale of growth and seasonal change, beginning and ending with 'the seeds that slept in the soil all dark and deep' and how they bloom, flourish and ultimately lead to new growth. Told with great warmth, this is a comforting story about the cycle of life in its many forms.
