A NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER

About Ancient Secrets in the Garden
 
     Verna Namy has once again teamed up with artist Mary Martin to produce a children's book, Ancient Secrets in the Garden. This time the book is hardback, 8"x10", 32 pages, and fully illustrated in color.
    The characters are all delightful people from the fairy realm. Jennifer has been chosen to learn the knowledge of the herbs, so she can help others in our world.
    Along with being a spellbinding storyteller, Namy offers at the end of the book several recipes passed on to her from her mother, Romeio King, who was an herbologist and wanted to pass her knowledge on to others.
    Besides tasty recipes for dishes and party food, there are recipes for everything from salad dressing to hair rinse, shampoo, facial cleanser, skin softener, and a special notebook on the ways certain herbs can treat ailments in the body.
    After reading this book, you'll want to go pick some rose hips to make syrup, candy or jelly. Or you might get a craving for violet flower sandwiches, elderberry flower fritters or cattail pancakes. It's a book you'll want as a keeper, because paging through the more than 30 watercolor illustrations is such a delight to the eye. It's the kind of book a child will treasure all of her life -- and ask to have read to her over and over again.
