L'album s'ouvre sur une illustration monochrome qui d#65533;peint l'atmosph#65533;re d'une ville semblable #65533; tant d'autres. Ses habitants sont loin de se douter que le geste d'un seul homme est sur le point de changer leur vie. Cet homme est un artiste qui, #65533; la faveur de la nuit et secr#65533;tement, cr#65533;e avec le feuillage des arbres de somptueuses sculptures. L'album se pare de plus en plus de couleurs #65533;voquant la joie. Parmi la foule rassembl#65533;e au pied des oeuvres, seul un jeune gar#65533;on aura le bonheur de conna#65533;tre l'auteur de tant de beaut#65533;. Il deviendra l'apprenti de ce vieil artiste qui lui transmettra avec bienveillance son pr#65533;cieux savoir.

Un album sur l'influence de l'art sur la vie en communaut#65533;.

One day, William discovers that the tree outside his window has been sculpted into a wise owl. In the following days, more topiaries appear, and each one is more beautiful than the last. Soon, William's gray little town is full of colour and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William-and his town-are changed forever.

With breathtaking illustrations and spare, sweet text, this masterpiece about enjoying the beauty of nature is sure to become an instant classic.
