Tom's Midnight Garden Graphic Edition

 We are in the midst of a big home project which is requiring me to empty one of the bookcases in the girls' room.  It's impossible not to get distracted pulling all those wonderful books off the shelves.  I keep rediscovering treasures like this graphic version of one of my favorites. 

Tom's Midnight Garden is certainly a special book.  I'm not surprised that the illustrator Edith has re-read it many times through their life!  I prefer the original novel, but this is definitely a fun version, especially if you enjoy graphic novels (which have been growing on me).
