The Digger and the Flower
Each day, the big trucks go to work. They scoop and hoist and push. But when Digger discovers something growing in the rubble, he sets in motion a series of events that will change him, and the city, forever.
The Digger and the Flower is a love letter to nature and a very personal story of growth and courage. Of all the books I’ve created, I love this one most.
