In a 100-year-old plot, growing beside a tiny house on a hidden city street, stories take root all centered around One Small Garden by Barbara Nichols, illus. by Barry Moser. The delicate watercolors provide fertile ground for the urban legends, gardening lore and tender tales about humanity's relationship with nature. (Oct.)
