Seed Magic - Jane Buchanan, Charlotte Riley-Webb Appeal characteristics: modern art feel, unique story aspect

I'm not sure how to describe this book. I'm not sure if the message is look at the ugly and make it beautiful...or crazy people aren't necessarily crazy? It has remnants of fairy tale/fable elements but I felt the storyline did not quite connect. The art almost overshadows the story itself as I was more interested to how the book was illustrated than about the story at all!
