Sprout the plant lives on a small porch, in a little town. She’s only been able to grow two leaves and knows exactly why. Home is just not enough for her – she needs to venture out to the wild woods, the wise forest, and the lush jungle to find what she needs to thrive.
But once she’s out in the world, Sprout quickly learns that what she really needs may not be what she thought at all . . .
Meet a budding new picture book character with roots in this hilarious and heartfelt adventure about growing up, taking risks, and finding home again.

Contributor Notes

Jessika von Innerebner is an author, artist, imagination instigator, creative thinker, and adventurous soul. If she were a plant, she would be a monstera because even though she needs her space to spread out, she also loves being around others. Jessika has an awesome community of fronds and has grown a lot because of them. Though she often leaves in search of excitement, Jessika always returns home to her roots.
