The Guardian – Children’s Best New Picture Book Review!

We are over the moon to see that our author, Sally Anne Garland’s recently published book, The Chalk Garden, has been featured in The Guardian’s monthly “Children’s and Teens roundup – the best new picture books and novels” review!

Not only was The Chalk Garden first on the list, Sally’s beautiful illustration was also used as the feature image for the article.

The Guardian calls The Chalk Garden “A lush, joyful picture book, full of growth, colour and creativity.”

This book very much deserves to be featured in this review, and we are thrilled for Sally.
