Description

 

See below for English description.

L’album s’ouvre sur une illustration monochrome qui dépeint l’atmosphère d’une ville semblable à tant d’autres. Ses habitants sont loin de se douter que le geste d’un seul homme est sur le point de changer leur vie. Cet homme est un artiste qui, à la faveur de la nuit et secrètement, crée avec le feuillage des arbres de somptueuses sculptures.

L’album se pare de plus en plus de couleurs évoquant la joie. Parmi la foule rassemblée au pied des oeuvres, seul un jeune garçon aura le bonheur de connaître l’auteur de tant de beauté. Il deviendra l’apprenti de ce vieil artiste qui lui transmettra avec bienveillance son précieux savoir.

Un album sur l’influence de l’art sur la vie en communauté.

 

One day, William discovers that the tree outside his window has been sculpted into a wise owl. In the following days, more topiaries appear, and each one is more beautiful than the last. Soon, William’s gray little town is full of colour and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William— and his town — are changed forever.

With breathtaking illustrations and spare, sweet text, this masterpiece about enjoying the beauty of nature is sure to become an instant classic.

Original title: The Night Gardener
