What's Dandelions About

Publisher Summary

This heart-warming picture book explores the bond between a father and his daughter. One day, a little girl notices her father mowing the lawn — in the process destroying her favourite flowers: the dandelions. She rushes out to stop him, but she’s too late, they’re all gone. There’s nothing for it: she’s just going to have to sit outside and wait until they grow back! But fortunately, Dad has another idea. &nsbp; Exquisite watercolour illustrations combine with lyrical text to create a story that’s perfect for readers aged 4–8. This book will be cherished by families and recommended by teachers and librarians, exploring as it does the resilience of nature, the art of forgiveness, and the unique love between a parent and child.
