Read full description of the books:
With a storyline reminiscent of The House that Jack Built - but with a circularity where the end returns to the beginning - this is a lush poetic tribute to Isabella and her garden.
It almost seems like a cliché to describe this as lyrical, sensitive and evocative - because almost all of Millard's works are plump with luscious imagery - and I'm starting to feel repetitive in my descriptions of her work.
The illustrations are vibrant and rich and, although strong and vivid in their own right, I'm far from sure they were the perfect complement to Millard's peach-fuzz, thistledown-light poetry. The words had just a touch of the ethereal to them that the robust primary colours of the illustrations failed to capture.
But, if you like stark pictures rather than gentle ones, add another star.

Read information about the authorGlenda Millard was born in the Goldfields region of Central Victoria and has lived in the area all her life. The communities she has lived in and the surrounding landscapes have provided a rich source of inspiration and settings for many of her stories.
It was not until Glenda's four children became teenagers that she began to write in her spare time. She is now a full-time writer.
Apart from writing, some of Glenda's favorite things are Jack Russell Terriers, hot-air ballooning, making and eating bread and pizza in the wood-fired oven that her husband built in the back yard, and reading books which either make her laugh or cry.
Glenda has published six picture books, three junior fiction titles, short stories and two young adult titles. 'The Naming of Tishkin Silk' was shortlisted in the CBCA Book of the Year Awards and for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards.
