Bestselling author/illustrator Michael Garland displays his impressive illustration range with the stylized, country-quilt, digital collage illustrations of A SEASON OF FLOWERS.

First, crocuses and snowdrops. Then, tulips and hyacinths. Dogwood, iris, lupine, daisies . . . As the year goes by, so do the flowers, each lovelier than the last. Finally, chrysanthemums, and then a blanket of white snow before we drink it all in once again. Illustrated with Michael Garland’s distinctive digital collage technique, this toddler’s first book of seasons is strikingly lovely.

Michael Garland is the illustrator of 75 children’s picture books, half of which he also wrote. Miss Smith and the Haunted Library is a New York Times bestseller. Other recent books include Tilbury's A Season of Flowers, and Daddy Played the Blues, Lost Dog, Tugboat, Car Goes Far, Fish Had a Wish (starred review from Publisher’s Weekly), Where’s My Homework?, and Grandpa’s Tractor (selected for the Original Art of Children’s Book Show by the Society of Illustrators in New York). He has illustrated bestselling picture books for James Patterson, Gloria Estefan, and other celebrity authors, and his illustrations for Patterson’s SantaKid were the inspiration for Saks Fifth Avenue’s Christmas holiday window display in New York City. Garland’s Christmas Magic has become a seasonal classic and is currently in development as an animated Christmas special. Michael makes school visits across the country.
