Synopsis

This garden is on the move! A good-time, rollicking celebration of things that grow.

PEPPERS GROW UP.
POTATOES GROW DOWN.
PUMPKINS VINE AROUND AND AROUND.

From seeds dropping into soil to corn bursting from its stalks, from children chasing butterflies to ants burrowing underground, everything in this vibrant picture book pulses with life — in all directions! Sprightly illustrations set the mood for a rhythmic text that follows nature’s course to a final feast of backyard bounty.
