Full of engaging pictures to excite children about the garden and outdoors. By Stephen Biggs & Emma Biggs

    In this book, a Fig Pig (Steven) who lives in a coldish climate, shares his passion for figs so that others in fig-unfriendly places can see that growing this fabulous fruit isn’t rocket science. Tips, techniques, and anecdotes—along with the insights of fig experts in North America and the UK—make fig growing easy for people who live in places where they think they can’t grow figs. By Stephen Biggs

    ZESTFUL, FUN, INFORMATION-PACKED, OPINIONATED—even slightly irreverent—this graphic-novel-meets-gardening-book empowers readers to make their own decisions in the vegetable garden because the authors, two garden coaches, talk frankly about issues…and don’t always agree. “Your book has changed my life,” declared one reader.
