25th Anniversary Edition

Linnea has been in Paris. And she has visited the painter Claude Monet's garden! She even stood on the same little Japanese bridge that Monet painted so often in his pictures. In Paris, Linnea got to see many of the real paintings.

Now she can understand what it means to be called an Impressionist, and she knows a lot about Monet's life in the pink house where he lived with his eight children.

Twenty-five years after its original publication, this celebration of the wonder of art is available once again in an enlarged keepsake edition. The joy and inspiration Linnea discovers in Monet's garden will be eagerly embraced by a new generation of readers.

"Original and charming."—New Yorker

About the author (2012)

Christina Bjork and Lena Anderson have collaborated on children's books for many years, including Linnea's Windowsill Garden and Linnea's Almanac, which won the West German National Children's Book Award in 1984. Like Linnea, the authors were nature-loving city girls, born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. The studio they share today is a charming country house with a lovely garden right in the heart of Stockholm.
