When the Flower Man arrives he buys an old shack, long forgotten and long abandoned. His neighbors don't know what to think as everything he touches turns to color. He plants a garden, gives away a flower . . . and the next thing you know, every life is transformed in this wordless picture book. The message within, while simple, is profound. It points to the fact that every life matters and love never fails to change lives. Every window tells a different story—more than 60 of them. All ages will enjoy it, and when given a chance to discover it, people never forget it. Don't forget to find Squeakers, the elusive gray mouse found on every spread . . . somewhere!
