KIRKUS REVIEW

 Mrs. Rose's Garden ($15.00; May 1, 1996; 32 pp.; 0-689-80215-3): A gentle tale of homegrown generosity. Mrs. Rose has always wanted to win blue ribbons, until her unusual mix of fertilizers produces a whole garden full of prize-winning vegetables. ``Somehow it didn't feel like fun anymore,'' so Mrs. Rose hits on a plan to neatly redistribute the bounty and turn all her neighbors into winners, too. Mrs. Rose gets a special ribbon from Mr. Rose for having ``the biggest heart''--a nice touch in a winning and warming story accompanied by paintings that have a flattened perspective and a sweet, quirky magic. (Picture book. 3-6)
