AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set on the banks of the Wingecarribee River, Adam's Garden is about a child's everyday play. Here Adam is master, interacting with his animal friends - Gordon the goanna, Kevin Wombat and Blimp, the blue-tongued lizard - and even sometimes blitzing the pirate, Captain Custard. As well as about play, Adam's Garden is also about purpose. The book successfully reaches into a hospital bed, lightening the load of a sick child and anxious parents. Adam's Garden shows us the magic of imagination by transporting us to any place we choose.'-- Back cover.
