Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0884482243, Paperback)Gita misses her grandmother Naniji back in India, and especially her beautiful garden. Her new yard now is just boring grass. Through a broken section of fence she can see the lush garden of mean old Mr. Flinch next door, and makes her long for Naniji's garden with its vibrant colors, twisty paths, and surprise corners. But nearsighted Mr. Flinch snaps at her when he catches her looking over the fence and even thinks she's a boy! When Gita hears him playing his fiddle in his garden one morning, she decides to try to make friends. The old man and the young girl discover that their shared love of music and growing things overcomes differences in age and culture.
