My Nana's Garden

author: Dawn Casey
illustrator: Jessica Courtney-Tickle

My nana’s garden is tangled with weeds. "Wildflowers,” says Nana, “food for the bees."

A little girl visits her grandmother in summer and winter, and together they explore the wonders of her garden. Until, one day, Nana isn't there anymore. But as winter gives way to spring, the girl learns that life goes on, and so does the memory of those we love.

A lyrical, stunningly illustrated book about love, loss, and the healing power of nature

illustrator’s comments:
Jessica Courtney-Tickle’s favorite thing to draw or paint is nature. She is influenced by vintage picture books, travel posters, and folk art as well as numerous painters and printmakers. She uses a mixture of hand-painted backgrounds and digital effects to give her work a heavily textured and decorative appeal. She is the author-illustrator of Little Christmas Tree. Jessica Courtney-Tickle lives in England surrounded by trees and lots of local wildlife.
