This story has whimsical illustrations that show life both above and below the ground. Above are the troll father and son, while below are the various animal families, all of whose houses are illustrated in detail. The story is simple; a seed falls into the ground and disrupts life both above and below. It is up to Jack to protect the (tomato) plant and restore order.
This book’s strength is the illustrations while the idea of what goes on below ground may also appeal to young listeners.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest review.
