Look at this story about one boy's dream to have a garden

Published on: 14 May 2018 Author: Sophie Offord

Errol loves gardening, but he lives in a busy city and doesn't have a garden. Maybe there's a solution that can bring the whole community together? Get a taster of this heartwarming tale in our picture gallery.

Errol's Garden (Child's Play) is a gorgeous picture book about a dilemma that a lot of us face: what to do for outdoor space with your child when you live in a packed city and only have a teeny home? 

Part of what makes the book so adorable (besides the illustrations from author Gillian Hibbs) is Errol, the boy character at the heart of it. Very cutely, he loves plants and flowers and wants to grow as many of them as possible. 

Luckily, he finds a solution that could very well bring the whole neighbourhood together – take a look at the gallery below to find out what...

Trust us, it's blooming lovely.
