An eventful meeting between two great talents in children’s literature!

A little girl crosses the park every day to visit her sick uncle. She observes babies growing up, lovers “kissing, and then less, and then not”, branches breaking. There are many things to see in the garden! And then she notices something else: the hair on the statues is growing! Oh, slowly, you have to be very careful to see it... Over the months, she tells her uncle about the secret life of the garden.

But in spring, nothing goes right. It seems that the cherubs in the fountain are going to start a rock band and the Three Graces near the kiosk have bangs that go down to their chins! A lady in the park is astonished: but what is the hairdresser doing? What do you mean, the hairdresser?

A breathtaking album painted from life in the public garden, full of mystery and fantasy!
