About the Book

There was nothing Isabella loved more than spending time working in the garden with her grandmother. At five years old, she thought Grandma Pat had the most beautiful garden in the world. As you read The Garden Party, you will understand how Isabella discovered the imaginative world of garden fairies. “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein A portion of the proceeds form the sale of The Garden Party will be donated to local food banks.
