A playful story that children will enjoy again and again about an inventive boy, a kindly gardener, a growing friendship, and the promise of a bulb. When Tom’s neighbor Mr. Yilmaz gives him a brown bulb, Tom can’t believe it will flower. “That’s not a daffodil!” says Tom. “Well,” says the old gardener. “Let’s plant it and see.” Tom plays a game of imagination as the daffodil bulb given to him by his kindly neighbor grows first into a green beak, then turns into a rocket, and finally into a trumpet of gold. A satisfying tale, playful repetition, and building anticipation will make children request this story again and again.
