Review by Publisher Summary 1

The children are the only ones who notice a welcome intruder as a lively forest encroaches on a distracted town in this captivating picture book.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

From dusk to dawn a forest creeps into a town where the grown-ups are too distracted to notice. But the children do.They see greenery take root in the lifeless cracks of dull sidewalks. They see an eagle build her nest atop a forgotten fountain and saplings start to sprout in dark corners. A gray-drab city defined by concrete and steel, vibrations and notifications, transforms into a living garden where apartment buildings overflow with window boxes full of flowers, birds sing songs through day and night and children laugh and tend to their gardens. Watch as nature reclaims this town.
