Rose Meets Mr Wintergarten

By Bob Graham

‘A little kindness goes a long way,’ is the subtle moral depicted in this gentle tale by award winning Australian author-illustrator Bob Graham.

All the children are afraid of mean Mr Wintergarten. His garden is grey and sunless and it is guarded, they say, by a dog like a wolf and a saltwater crocodile. By contrast, the garden of his sunny new neighbours, the Summers, is a playground of happiness and flowers. One day Rose's ball goes over the fence into Mr Wintergarten's garden and, prompted by her mother, Rose visits her frosty next-door neighbour, bearing hot fairy cakes and flowers. What will Mr Wintergarten say?
