Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Grace thinks her neighbour Larry's tiny garden is one of the wonders of the world. She helps him hoe, weed and water -- and together they solve problems from hungry squirrels to lettuce-eating slugs. As spring approaches, Grace helps Larry start hundreds of tomato plants in little pots, and Larry brings them to the school where he teaches. Grace wants to know what the students will do with all those plants. Larry tells her to wait and see, but promises that they are growing more than just tomatoes. Then, when Larry's neighbour adds a section to his fence that blocks out the sunlight his garden needs to thrive, Larry and Grace need to solve the biggest problem they've encountered yet.... Inspired by the true story of a teacher from Toronto named Larry Zacharko."-- Provided by publisher.
