Isla and her mother go on an enchanting journey to the Global Seed Vault in Norway to discover a garden waiting at the end of the world.

At the end of the world is an island covered in ice.
On the island is a mountain.
Inside the mountain is a vault.
And inside the vault are millions of seeds.

When Isla makes a special discovery, she and her botanist mother adventure to the Global Seed Vault in Norway. Isla is going to leave her precious package there, so children who haven't even been born yet can grow and eat the food we all enjoy. What else will they encounter along the way?

The Garden at the End of the World is a hopeful story about protecting nature's treasures for the future.
