Rebecca and the Strangest Garden on Earth - Review & Giveaway

If you ever thought that talking to your plants was a silly idea, Rebecca and the Strangest Garden on Earth just might have you changing your mind!

Rebecca is a delightful young girl spending a long holiday weekend with her Auntie. The warm summer sun makes the colorful, varied garden the perfect place to balance the dullness of the homework she must do. When the Clematis starts talking to her, Rebecca is taken quite by surprise!

Pest invasions, suspicious characters and curiously quiet African Lily make for a sweet, entertaining story perfect for children 4+. My daughters (6 and 8) were completely entranced by the story. They got totally caught up in the gentle emotions skillfully portrayed by author Imogen Daley.

By the end, they were on the edge of their seats, giddy with excitement and joy and wanting to read it again straightaway. Overall, we loved it. My only complaint is that it is an e-book only; I'm still happiest with paper in my hands.

To me, this is simple children's lit at its best. Clean, innocent and it inspires the imagination! It may also inspire little gardeners! You can win a copy simply by way of the easy entry Rafflecopter form below just in time for summer holidays!
