The Last Garden

In a war-torn city, Zara tends the last garden left, growing and sharing fruit and vegetables and providing a place for peaceful play. When it becomes too dangerous for people to stay they leave for a time but when they return some months later they find that the plants have kept on growing ‘tall and strong and wild and free.’

A story with a message of hope told in simple, straightforward language with detailed pictures to pore over.
