Book Reviews: From Topiaries to Tootling
Posted on November 14, 2014
There are some exciting changes ahead for Sand Has No Home, including a new home and a very different look, but, everything in its own time.
and I will continue to post there as well. I hope you enjoy these tiny reviews as much as I enjoy reading the books!
Without further ado, here I go with my first four micro reviews!
Grandpa Green by Lane Smith
Grandpa Green tells the story of a man through the eyes of his great grandson – retelling Grandpa Green’s own stories of a long life remembered without regret. Grandpa Green read books as a boy, and imagined his adventures. He dreamed of being a horticulturist but went off to fight in a war instead.
He is old now, and his memory is fading, but his garden -a place verdant with memory- fills the gaps. With illustrations based on charming topiary and shades of green, this book is a loving rumination on ageing and memoir from the view of a child.
Cat and Fish by Joan Grant and illustrated by Neil Curtis
