Mr. Aster, who likes routine, is happy to care for Little Green Girl when she arrives in his garden, but not interested in helping her see the world beyond its walls.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #2
*Starred Review* Charming illustrations in acryla gouache and pencil introduce readers to a delightful tale of newfound friendship and adventure. Mr. Aster and his small white terrier, Basil, spend their days outside as the gentleman is an avid gardener. He has his daily routines that never vary, and his life is, well, routine. When an unusual seed blows into his yard, he plants it in his greenhouse, watches it grow, and is amazed when the plant blossoms into a Little Green Girl. He doesn't realize it at first, but the small plant will change his life forever. Growing in the garden where he places her, the Little Green Girl makes friends with the dog, a handful of squirrels, and a colony of inquisitive rabbits. But it's the birds' stories of far-off lands that create a yearning in the Little Green Girl and a desire to pull up roots and go exploring. How she silently but determinedly persuades the settled Mr. Aster to branch out makes for a wonderful, engaging story filled with love and devotion. The intricately detailed, bright, and cheerful pictures, presented in a variety of sizes, are a treat for the eye. This touching story will capture the hearts of readers of all ages.
