About the book: Something strange is happening in Grimloch Lane. A mysterious night gardener is transforming the local trees into spectacular topiary. William is fascinated by the night gardener and his work, and one night he meets him face to face.
Reasons for selection: This is a visually rich book and offers wonderful opportunities to develop visual literacy. Much of the story is told through the illustrations rather than the text. There are openings for discussions about motivation, predictions and individual response. So much is conveyed through the illustrations and use of colour, but the language is well chosen and offers tremendous scope for useful vocabulary work.
