A DANDELION: A Story That Touches on the Sensitive Topic of “Flowerism” by Andrew Everstine
The inspiration for the book came from the author’s daughter, Ashli, who was three years old.
Ashli said to the author, “Tell me a story, Daddy.”
“Okay but you have to give me the title,” the author replied.
“A Dandelion,” she said.
And a new universe of writing was born.
Sally Dandelion is a kind-hearted soul just trying to go through life. Not being invited to a party based on what kind of flower/weed you are is not fair. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly.
“A DANDELION” addresses racism in a kind way through flowers. It takes place in a make-believe flower town. Themes include being kind, being humble and reserving judgment.
Be careful who you judge because that flower/weed may one day save your life!
