|From The Publisher*||What if a dandelion became a real lion? With enchanting, ethereal art, this wordless story shares a world where reality can be transfigured by imagination.|
In a meadow filled with dandelion buds just about to flower, one dandelion blooms into a real lion. Roots and leaves unfurl into four tiny paws and a long tail with a fluffy yellow tuft. What a great, wide world there is to explore when you have paws instead of roots: there are fast trains to ride, regal ships to sail, and cities with lights as bright as Dandelion's field in full bloom. But will a real lion ever be content to go back to being a rooted dandelion? Yoko Tanaka's exquisite illustrations take us on an adventure where even the smallest seeds contain cosmic dreams.
