A luminescent book about loss and grief, love and hope, and the healing power of friendship and nature, from New York Times-bestselling author Brian Lies.Readers of Cynthia Rylant's classic Dog Heaven, the Fan Brothers' The Night Gardener, and anyone experiencing loss will be swept up by this poignant story. Evan and his dog do everything together, from eating ice cream to caring for their award-winning garden, which grows big and beautiful. One day the unthinkable happens: Evan's dog dies. Heartbroken, Evan destroys the garden and everything in it. The ground becomes overgrown with prickles and thorns, and Evan embraces the chaos.But beauty grows in the darkest of places, and when a twisting vine turns into an immense pumpkin, Evan is drawn out of his misery and back to the county fair, where friendships--old and new--await.New York Times-bestselling author-illustrator Brian Lies has created a beautiful, accessible, and deeply personal story about friendship, loss, and recovery.
