From the author and illustrator of 'Alba the Hundred Year Old Fish'!
Each creature in the garden has something special to offer, but what about a slug? Slow, slimy and greedy, Herbert wishes he could weave shimmering webs like spiders, or create wonderful underground worlds like ants. But when his lonely night-time wanderings through the garden take him up into the treetops, he and the other creatures are astonished at the beauty he has created. Spotting spreads plus helpful hints on how to look after the creatures in your own garden add to this garden-inspired tale.
