The Time Garden is a magical story about an imaginative little girl who follows her curiosity at the stroke of midnight through the antique cuckoo clock her grandfather brings home from Germany, where she sees a red-haired fairy and discovers a fantasy world.   The little girl couldn't understand the concept of electricity so she decides to explore this clock to learn how it worked without batteries. Through her journey, she must find the door back to reality. 

The Time Garden is a grown-up inspired coloring book which is not like your typical coloring book that is meant only for children. Instead, this book reaches out to a more grown up audience. Perfect for grown ups to renew their love of coloring. This book has a story written on a couple of it's pages and each coloring page tells part of the story.  I really liked the uniqueness of the whole concept of going off into dream world and then coming back to reality.  The cover was beautiful. The pages were very good in size. The art to color was varied, but beautiful.  
I expected this to be a book about gardens. I was pretty surprised though what lied on these pages instead.  Am definitely considering repurchasing this and the follow-up books by this author for gifting.  I would suggest thin markers or colored pencils for these pages.
