Grandpa Green

By Lane Smith

From the creator of the national bestseller It's a Book comes a timeless story of family history, legacy, and love.
 
Grandpa Green wasn't always a gardener. He was a farmboy and a kid with chickenpox and a soldier and, most of all, an artist. In this captivating new picture book, readers follow Grandpa Green's great-grandson into a garden he created, a fantastic world where memories are handed down in the fanciful shapes of topiary trees and imagination recreates things forgotten.
 
In his most enigmatic and beautiful work to date, Lane Smith explores aging, memory, and the bonds of family history and love; by turns touching and whimsical, it's a stunning picture book that parents and grandparents will be sharing with children for years to come.
 
Grandpa Green is a Publishers Weekly Best Children's Picture Books title for 2011.
One of School Library Journal’s Best Picture Books of 2011.
