Book review: Number 7 Evergreen Street by Julia Patton.

Book review number 7 at evergreen street on

Number 7 Evergreen Street is such a lovely uplifting story that celebrates community and one my girls and I have really enjoyed. Published by Templar books and written and illustrated by Julia Patton, this would be a wonderful pick for all libraries.

Number 7 evergreen street
Penelope Petersham, also know as Pea, lives amongst a wonderful community of neighbours who are supportive, interesting and colourful. The residents are a stark contrast to their surroundings which are all grey, but grey as it may be Pea’s home has caught the eye of developers.

Pea proves to be quick thinking and hatches a plan. With her neighbours on board they work hard together in the hope that the developers will change their mind. There is much worry that surrounds them and their plan isn’t a quick fix. It takes weeks and many green fingers but it blooms in to a wonderful surprise.

Throughout the book readers are met with joyful, collaged, inclusive illustrations. There are also fold out page surprises. This book is a hug of a book in these unprecedented times and has certainly made me smile.
