This beautiful book is one of my son's favourites, and one we read over and over again. It is the story of the runner beans grown by Jody and her Granda. Doyle's text is gentle and wonderfully descriptive, but also very informative. It tells you all you need to know to grow your own beans - preparing the soil, planting and caring for the plants, right through to cooking the beans and saving the seeds for next year!
Allibone's delicate and pretty drawings have plenty to look at - and the start of the show has to be the white cat, who appears in almost every picture! It is a stunning debut for this new artist who says she hopes to inspire children to grow things - well, it certainly worked for my little boy - he's hooked!

This is an ordinary story about ordinary beans. But it is made charming by the challenge it sets the small leading character, and hopefully will enourage other readers to learn how to grow things and to love nature. The pictures are magical and the whole production has an almost Victorian appeal.

This is a delightful story about growing not only beans, but also developing patience, creating memories and nurturing relationships. The illustrations are charming, clever (spot mum in the background to see what she is growing) and full of wonder. My three year old loves it.
