In Mr. Handsome’s Garden is a book for our time – a time when we crave a dose of quietness and time for talking with the children we love about things that really matter: kindness, doing one’s best, and appreciating our world and the people around us. In Mr. Handsome’s Garden creates that kind of time. The stories in this book are fanciful, based on things Mr. Handsome has learned in his garden and around the world – from a turtle in his yard to a conversation between two antelope to a nighttime ocean ride on the back of a dolphin. They are written to excite the imagination. They are written especially to be read aloud.
