ABOUT THE BOOK
Dory Oslo is one tough city girl who just loves warm weather, smiles and baseball. But when it’s still cool outside and her mom suggests she start a garden, Dory is anything but interested. Begrudgingly, she plants some seeds. What happens next is frustrating, unusual, magical and perhaps a bit of fantasy as Dory’s garden and her life turn upside down—or does it? Find out in The Upside-Down Gardener*.
- Book comes with a pack of easy-to-grow wildflower seeds to encourage the gardener in your young reader
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A‘double decade’ freelance writer, who has turned a love for writing into loving what I write about—namely home, food, fashion, beauty, lifestyle and most recently, my pets and garden. My work allows me to be a perennial student—always learning something new, including navigating this world of children’s books. It began in 2007 with my first book in The Adventures of the Poodle Posse series, followed by Once upon a Poodle. I’ve stepped out of my wheelhouse for The Upside Down Gardener, having been inspired by a thwarted attempt at gardening. Innumerous hours are spent in classrooms, talking to kids about my love for writing and encouraging them to move forward in theirs.
