"In Brown's utopian vision, the urban and the pastoral mingle to joyfully harmonious effect--especially on the final pages, which show a city filled with rooftop gardens, fantastic topiaries, windmills and sparkling ponds."
"As all good, enduring stories are, THE CURIOUS GARDEN is a rich palimpsest....a whimsical tale celebrating perseverance and creativity, and a rousing paean, encouraging every small person and every big person that they too can nurture their own patch of earth into their very own vision of Eden."

Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.
