In the Garden with Flori

Batchelder Honor recipient Sonja Danowski has created a new story reminding us that love, patience, and a sense of humor help any garden to flower.

What a fuss! Linn’s grandfather broke his leg. Fortunately, his granddaughter Linn offers to take care of his spectacular garden. After all, Linn has helped out in the garden many times and knows a lot about plants. With Linn’s dog, Flori, and her good friend, Emi, by her side what could go wrong? But when mischievous Flori causes a mess, Linn has to learn to deal with a difficult situation. Taking responsibility for the first time is a big step. Together with Linn, we experience pride in the trust placed in us as well as self-doubts along the way. Sonja Danowski’s lovingly detailed illustrations appear almost lifelike and unfold with incomparable magic.

Her first book for NorthSouth Books, Grandma Lives in a Perfume Village, was a Batchelder Honor Book.

Praise for Little Night Cat

Batchelder Honor recipient Danowski’s full-bleed pages done in watercolors employ a palette rich with earth tones of oranges, browns, and greens, while Linn’s clothing and home mirror the intricate designs of nature in all its complexity.
