A delightful story about appreciating the beauty in nature and discovering your creativity.
Each creature in the garden has something special to offer, but what about a slug? Slow, slimy and greedy, Herbertwishes he could weave shimmering webs like spiders, or create wonderful underground worlds like ants. But when his lonely night-time wanderings through the garden take him up into the treetops, he and the other creatures are astonished at the beauty he has created. Spotting spreads plus helpful hints on how to look after the creatures in your own garden add to this garden-inspired tale.
