A sensory delight for young readers brimming with colorful imagery showcasing an assortment of animals and the beauty of the garden.

SYNOPSIS: A darling children's book with beautifully painted illustrations, that captures every reader's attention. Take a trip to Papa's garden with him to solve the mystery of "What is eating the garden". He knows, but can you guess? Maybe it's a bunny, a sneaky bandit raccoon, a crocodile, or something even BIGGER! Young and old alike will be surprised by the ending! This book is a fun way to enjoy your vegetables too!

This book beautifully captures a special memory between a grandfather and grandchild enjoying time together in the garden. The whimsical illustrations, charming rhymes and parade of animals against the bold and bright colors of this sweet and evocative moment will appeal to young children. The story is a reminder to slow down and savor the simple pleasures of a lifetime spent with family, a warm spring day, the peaceful feeling of time spent in nature, the free-spirited imagination and sense of wonder evoked through the eyes of a toddler. Gorgeous illustrations set the tone and create a dream-like feeling of nostalgia. Sure to be a beloved read aloud.

Something's Eating the Garden!

Beautifully Illustrated Children's Book for Young Readers by Pam Fries.

Something's Eating the Garden is ideal for toddlers and preschoolers. Early school-aged readers will have fun reading it for themselves and to younger children as well.

Little ones will laugh at the incongruities of the animals in the garden, like a crocodile in the pumpkin patch or an elephant in the corn!  Parents will enjoy reading the book to children because of the beautiful artwork and the surprise at the end.

Bright Colors and Spirit! Something's Eating Garden is the beautifully colored picture book that any age groups enjoy! For the toddlers and preschoolers, there are so many discussions before turning a page. The best part is the ending twist! Highly recommend!
