Summary When her father leaves her at her grandmothers house, the young girl at the center of this story feels abandoned and lonely. Her mother has moved to another country, and the girl wasnt paying attention when her father explained what was happening. And she hardly remembers her grandmother. After going up to her room she decides to venture out into the nighttime garden where she meets an owl, a frog and a mouse. They take her on a tour of her extraordinary new world. When she gets back in the morning, her grandmother explains that her father wont be back for a long time. The girl tells her that she wants to be able to spend time in the garden with the plants and animals of this new world, and her grandmother doesnt seem to be either surprised or alarmed by her nighttime adventures. And she is very happy that the girl and she will get to know each other.
