This is an unusual and lovely book from an award winning author and we're so pleased to see it on the shortlist for the Blue Peter Book Award ' Best book with Facts'. Alan Titchmarsh hit the nail on the head when he said about this book, 'This is such a great way of helping children to know wild flowers. I recommend it to any parent keen to pass on a love of nature to their children'.
