  1. Sophie Lettas

    Beautiful book, amazing illustrations and so well written.

  2. Sharon Thompson

    Read this book to my niece who was thoroughly enchanted. We now have some mystery seeds growing in our garden. A book that sparks the imagination.

  3. Gina Newton

    Grace’s Mystery Seed is one of those rare children’s books that creates life-long memories. It’s a wonderful story of intrigue and shared community that also inspires a keen interest and respect for nature. That’s definitely something kids need more of in this modern age of technical gadgets and staying indoors too much. An added benefit – young readers may be inspired to grow their own mystery seed!

  4. Elizabeth Asher

    This is a timeless book about different generations sharing the joy of gardening. It is well written and beautifully illustrated.

  5. Debbie Packham

    It is a really well written, (and beautifully illustrated) story of the cycle of life, and interactions with neighbours and other people. I love it.

  6. Elly Portanier

    Love this book, it’s very well written and beautifully illustrated. The involvement of the senior lady teaching the young ones about nature and patience is beautifully explained. Happy to give this book to my grandchildren,which am sure they will enjoy.

  7. Ash

    Amazing book, exceptionally written, very well illustrated. So much talent in one book. I never had an interest in gardening before but this book has changed that! The story behind this book is amazing! Well done!

  8. Lochlainn Heley

    Grace’s Mystery Seed is a picture book celebrating the wonders of exploration and mystery for children in the outdoors.

    Grace enjoys playing in the garden of her favourite neighbour, Mrs. Marino and exploring the fruit trees, veggie parch and goldfish pond. While helping catch snails and pick fruit, Grace discovers a mysterious seed and together with Mrs. Marino decide to plant it (rather than feeding it to Polly).

    ‘Polly likes these stripy seeds,’ Grace said. ‘What are they from?’
    ‘Let’s find out,’ said Mrs Marino.
    Karen Erasmus captures the wonder of the outdoors only fully seen by children in her detailed paint artwork of lush trees, deep rippling ponds and bright plants. With story by Juliet M Sampson, the two present a book which asks children to find the growing wonder found in the outdoors.

  9. Dimity Powell

    This simple tale of working together, community spirit, nature and patience, coupled with Erasmus’ fresh and flowery illustrations ensures a satisfying encounter with the cyclical side of life and reflects the rich diversity of not only a suburban garden but also society as a whole. This story is a perfect vehicle for discussion about discovery, patience, nature and new beginnings.
