About the Book

The Year of the Garden

Written by Andrea Cheng and illustrated by Patrice Barton

This prequel to THE YEAR OF THE BOOK follows perceptive, astute Anna as she strives to grow a perfect garden --- only to realize that the garden she grows with her new friend is more than good enough, weeds and all. A heartfelt and charming introduction to the Anna Wang series.

When Anna is gifted a copy of THE SECRET GARDEN, it inspires her to follow her dreams --- maybe she can plant ivy and purple crocuses and the birds will come. Or maybe what grows from her dream of a garden is even better: friendship. And friendship, like a garden, often has a mind of its own.

In this prequel to THE YEAR OF THE BOOK, join Anna in a year of discovery, new beginnings, friendships and growth.
