“At the end of the world is an island covered in ice. On the island is a mountain. Inside the mountain is a vault. And inside the vault are millions of seeds…” This is a book about how a little nature-loving girl named Isla discovers a peculiar seed and decides to secure it in the Global Seed Vault in the North Pole in Norway.
The garden at the end of the world is one of my favourite picture storybooks as it is suitable for all ages. The fact that both the words and the pictures provide deep and sophisticated descriptions about what is going on really makes this book quite special. One thing that could be improved is to have a better complication, as this would help enhance the plot even further. However, this book is overall quite superior to most other picture storybooks. I certainly recommend this book to any reader and I rate it 4/5 stars.
