The Gazebo is the latest collaboration between the highly successful, Maine- based author/illustrator team of Pochocki and Owens. It is the charming story about a little girl named Mary Rose who becomes intrigued with gazebos when she finds an old book on the subject in her father's library. Through the pages, she travels the world, enchanted by the varied miniature buildings of faraway lands. And each summer she delights in the gazebo her parents have built for her adjacent to their seacoast cottage in Maine. She dreams of building a gazebo of her own design, and later in her life, after traveling the world as an ambassador, she builds the perfect gazebo on the coast of Maine.
