Sprite and the Gardener by Joe Whitt, Rii Abrego


Sprites used to take care of gardens but when the humans showed up, they took them over.  Wisteria is a new sprite and she asks questions of the others.  She wants to help things grow.

Oni Press and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on May 4th.

Wisteria finds a garden that has died since the woman has to work so many hours.  She watches her daughter replant but nothing is blooming.  Wisteria can fix that.

It doesn't take long for the other sprites to show up.  Wisteria and the daughter make a good team but more help would be good.

This is a sweetly illustrated graphic novel that shows off the sprites and the flowers.  Soon more sprites join in and things are off to good start!
