The first time I read this story I choked up reading, ‘He would have no joy.’ I’m not sure if I was extra emotional that day but I do know that Emily Hughes has created so much emotion and charm in the world of the little gardener that you’d have to be a tough cookie not to empathise at all. Check out the beautiful pencil textures and details!
