Like the garden it portrays, Outside is a Baroque wonderland waiting to be explored, a shimmery place of texture, luminosity, and colour, where time stands still and memories are born.

Two internationally acclaimed creators—author Libby Hathorn and artist Ritva Voutila—have coupled their dazzling imaginative powers to capture the wonder of childhood in this homage to the magic of a garden.

Outside is a dazzling wonderland waiting to be explored. It takes the reader on a lyrical, magical journey which captures the sense of wonder that children feel while discovering the simple beauty of the outside world around them.
