"Children and parents will learn about a variety of gardening styles with this charming DIY guide. The book opens with some general tips about gardening and plant care and then presents ideas for growing edible, indoor, creative, and enchanted gardens.

YA Books Central - Angela Blount

"Don’t let the name intimidate you—this guide is as extensive as it is accessible. The book features 111 pleasingly well laid out pages, each with full-color imagery worthy of Pinterest. There are plenty of quick tips, interesting facts, detailed instructions, and even a few recipes. The writing style is informative without being dull, and the contents range from practical all the way to whimsical. . . .The variety of ideas and potential activities are impressive all on their own, but it’s the affordability of most of these suggestions that most delighted this reader (/wannabe guerilla gardener.) Repurposing or recycling existing materials is a consistent theme, along with thoughts on how to procure them for cheap or free if you don’t have them handy. . . .Both fun and functional, this book is a great resource for any budding young gardener." - YA Books Central
