Description


While the rest of her classmates were making pastries in cooking classes, Mary Nohl was making art—anything she fancied out of anything she could find. Inspiration struck Mary even when she wasn’t looking for it. Mary used common objects to make uncommon art. And one day, her garden was a gallery.
        Mary Nohl passed away in 2001 at the age of eighty-seven. Her famous garden gallery is located in the front yard of her Fox Point, Wisconsin, home to this day.

Praise For…


"This quiet, engaging offering celebrates the artist's vision and her idiosyncratic work."
—Booklist

"The illustrations combine watercolor with digital painting, collage, and vintage papers, resulting in a soft palette and an uncomplicated, accessible drawing style. Children will delight in the whimsy of the art pieces and their placement in the garden as well as the participation of Mary’s dogs, Sassafras and Basil, in the discovery process."
—School Library Journal

"The Küglers use watercolor, digital painting, collage and vintage papers to portray Mary's world and sculptures...A friendly chronicle of an offbeat artist."
—Kirkus

"Chalky mixed-media collages are punctuated by items of significance...a quiet homage."
—Publishers Weekly

"The authors embellish their picture-book biography of artist Mary Nohl (1914–2001) with touches of whimsy...The illustrations—digital collages of scratchy, affectionate paintings on an assortment of papers—mirror this sense of wonder."
—Horn Book Magazine

"An appealing and kid-friendly introduction to Nohl's art."
—Bulletin

Following 12-year old recently orphaned Joseph on his quest to get his only family back -his beloved horse Sarah- author Gemeinhart brings together race relations in the late 1800's, western lore and a clear-eyed pragmatism that, coupled with his signature action/adventure plot twists and a kindheartedness thread permeating the story, this wonderful, evocative and first rate middle grade title builds on his exceptional debut (The Honest Truth). This is an author that has clearly established himself as a must read for warm hearted, realistic adventures. - Maureen
