Review

'If I had to pick just one gift book to give this Christmas, then Nosy Crow's beautiful I Am the Seed that Grew the Tree, compiled by Fiona Waters and illustrated by Frann Preston-Gannon, would be it.' --Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

'I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree is a magical book for children and adults to enjoy together. A beautiful and unusual selection of poems boldly illustrated. It is a new favourite!' --Sarah Crossan, Irish Children's Laureate and CILIP Carnegie Medal Winner

'Now and again, books come along that realise the full potential of the medium... I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree is a perfectly-realised fusion of nature, verse and illustration. Taking the simple concept of a poem for every day some familiar, others treasures to be discovered Preston-Gannon and Waters haves produced a breath-taking compendium of words and pictures that beg to be read and cherished. It's a book that will be at the top of many of our own Christmas lists.' --Waterstones Book of the Year, Shortlist Review

"I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree is a magical book for children and adults to enjoy together. A beautiful and unusual selection of poems boldly illustrated. It is a new favourite!" - Sarah Crossan, Irish Children's Laureate and CILIP Carnegie Medal Winner
"'A real Hymn to nature.' says Nosy Crow of this outstanding poetry anthology and I wholeheartedly agree. Award-winning anthologist Waters has selected a nature poem for every day of the year, spanning over 400 years of poetry. Each page is illustrated in full colour by rising star Preston-Gannon, stylish and distinctive but with real child appeal. My preview copy has enthusiastically been claimed by my daughter who is reading a poem each night. A book to share, educate, entertain and to treasure." - The Bookseller
"Stylish and distinctive but with real child appeal. This will make a gorgeous gift; a book to share, educate, entertain and treasure." - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller's Buyers Guide

"I am besotted with I am the Seed. It's the kind of book every household should own." - Florentyna Martin, Children's Book Buyer for Waterstones
