The Ice Garden
Author David Macphail
Fantasy and Myths
When an iceberg suddenly appears in a river estuary near Zara’s home, the local residents are amazed – it is far too warm, and such a thing has never happened before – surely it will melt. But the iceberg stays, and it seems to have a garden growing on top of it. Zara, like the other residents, explores the iceberg with her family. And she is soon mixed up in a fantastical journey of discovery about the world she lives in.
