Me, Toma and the concrete garden

2019

by Andrew Larsen and Anne Villeneuve

"When Vincent is sent to his aunt Mimi's city apartment for the summer, he's surrounded by more concrete than nature. Things are looking gray. But before long, Vincent meets Toma, and the boys bond while throwing some strange dirt balls into an empty lot. All summer long, they toss and launch, throw and catch. Little do they know, though, just as their friendship is growing, something is also blooming in the empty lot. A celebration of the joy of a budding friendship, The Concrete Garden shows us the value of community and reminds us that sometimes everything can come up roses."--|cProvided by publisher
