Maxine and the Greatest Garden Ever (Hardcover)
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Best friends Maxine and Leo combine their maker and artistic skills to create (and save!) the ultimate garden in this empowering, STEM-focused picture book
After sketching and plotting and planting, Maxine and Leo know they've made The Greatest Garden Ever! But they're not the only ones who think so. Soon, all sorts of animals make their way in, munching on carrots and knocking over pots. When Leo and Maxine can't agree on a way to get rid of these unwelcome critters, it looks like there's more on the line than saving their garden--they just might need to save their friendship too.
