Pam Fries, an award-winning artist and illustrator, has published a lovely children’s picture book titled Something’s Eating the Garden.
The gorgeously illustrated book features an amazing garden adventure with a child and Papa. Papa discovers that something is eating his garden and the child tries to solve the mystery by guessing who the creature culprit could be.
The sweet (and curious) child imagines different animals— like an elephant, giraffe, pig or even a crocodile— nibbling on the garden plants.
But to no avail none are the guilty party!
With each turn of the page, the reader is greeted by whimsical, bright and beautiful, full-page illustrations.
It is a delight to the senses and will help create a curiosity of the outdoors, animal life and vegetables for every young child! A wonderful educational tool, for sure.
The Washington State author Pam Fries, published the book soon after the passing of her husband who the character “Papa” was based around. They were together for 40 years, and the book gave her purpose and a place to remember the legacy of her husband.
She has 5 beautiful grandchildren, a dog and many chickens!
Pam enjoys speaking to schools and Women’s groups, creating breath taking art— and working in the garden.
