Christopher’s Garden by Elsa Beskow is a dream book for the fall season. The author’s illustrations are so impressive that probably everyone would like to step into this autumn garden for a moment. Imagine that delicious apples, plums, blackberries and other ordinary and traditional healthy, yummy things have just ripened there. Christopher is lucky to play in this very garden. In it, he meets a boy named September, who helps him find a lost ball. On this occasion, Christopher personally meets the inhabitants of the garden, such as the jovial Mrs. Cabbage, the elegant Miss Plums, or the rather grumpy Mr. Blackcurrant. Some are nice, others less willing to help, as in life, and the matter of finding the ball gets more and more complicated. The action moves quickly, the atmosphere gets tense at times, which makes a walk through this garden and Elsa Beskow’s book fascinating. The child will definitely not get bored, and the person reading it can easily get inspired to bake something sweet with plums, apples or blackberries inside. I know something about that.
