Follow the story of a family's new home centered upon a perfect lawn. The passage of time finds the house eventually empty and overgrown by the uplifting power of nature. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser and wonderfully illustrated by Nucleus favorite Jon Klassen, this new release is a poignant tale of loss, change, and nature's quiet triumph.
