Reviews

US Kirkus Review » In a poignant updating of the theme of Estes' Hundred Dresses, Gregory, a lonely boy who is ignored by his busy parents, who are preoccupied with their own struggle to survive, creates a garden drawn in chalk on the fire-blackened wall of the abandoned factory behind his home. His classmates, who come to taunt, are startled into recognition of his accomplishment when Ivy, who has won a school prize for art, declares that Gregory has surpassed her. A gentle story, gracefully told. (Kirkus Reviews)
