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 authorial 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?
