Now in Big Book format!

Following the well known structure of The House That Jack Built, Isabella’s Garden tells the tale of growth and seasonal change, beginning and ending with ‘the seeds that slept in the soil all dark and deep’ and how they bloom, flourish and ultimately lead to new growth. Told with great warmth, this is a comforting story about the cycle of life in its many forms.


The Book Chook has a new favourite picture book. Isabella’s Garden has pushed its way into my heart and mind with beautiful, poetic writing, and eye-popping illustrations.

The Book Chook

Rebecca Cool’s superb, folksy illustrations are a riot of colour and beauty, deliciously housing Millard’s text and offering kids the perfect visual casing to this gorgeous book…
