This Caldecott Honor Award winning book set in 1935, ''The Gardener'' is the deceptively simple story of a young country girl who is sent to live with her uncle in a large, dark city. It is the heart of the Depression, and the family's economic distress has forced them to send Lydia Grace Finch away from home temporarily to live with her Uncle Jim. He is a dour, uncommunicative man whose features are fixed in a permanent scowl, and the mission Lydia takes upon herself is to get the man to smile -- just once. Upon this simple foundation, David Small and Sarah Stewart have constructed a moving, wonderfully rich illustrated story. It is that rarity, a pictorial delight that in 20 double pages gives more and more of itself each time it's read, and whose silent complexities reveal themselves with continuing pleasure. - NY Times Review of Books.
