              Each creature in the garden has something special to offer, but what about a slug? Slow, slimy and greedy, Herb wishes 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 to 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 non-fiction inspired tale. A stunningly-illustrated story about recognising your talents and celebrating each individual, this is a beautiful picture book by the author and illustrator of The Night Flower.

              It is a frosty winter evening, and the Baron, watching the snow fall through the window, is bored and fretful. It will soon be Christmas, and yet the household is subdued. Even the dogs are dozing. What can he do to cheer up the family and bring excitement into the manor? He ...is at a loss - until his wife, the Baroness, has an idea: he can appoint a Lord of Misrule; a peasant to be in charge of Christmas revelries. For twelve days, chaotic merriment ensues - schools are closed, wives drink in taverns, priests are dressed in petticoats, monkeys sit at the head of the table and general festive bacchanalia fills the manor - all culminating in a giant, happy feast on Christmas Day.
