A GREEN TALE FOR ALL AGES An enduring friendship sprouts between boy and plant. When a little boy runs in a panic from a haircut, a bird sees to it that his luxuriously follicated head is put to good use and drops a single seed right on top. Time passes, and wait...could it be? Something grows. A leaf! Instead of trying to rid himself of his new living hairstyle, the boy learns how to make the leaf grow, and, in turn, winds up growing a lot himself.

Editorial Reviews

"Copious white space and deft use of simple lines and details make the watercolor illustrations cozy yet clever . . . This is a joyous addition to any wordless picture book collection." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Wonderful squiggly lines, patches of green and brown, gold and blue and fabulous use of negative white space make this a joy to read." -Kirkus Reviews

"The small format and serene watercolors add to the story's charm." -Publishers Weekly

"A delightful story of a boy's love for his pet and for nature." -School Library Journal

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
