Illustrator: Peter Brown
In a city “without gardens or trees or greenery of any kind,” Liam’s curiosity leads him to explore an elevated train track. He discovers a few dying flowers and nurtures and cultivates them. “The flowers nearly drowned and he had a few pruning problems, but the plants patiently waited while Liam found better ways of gardening.”
