Synopsis

Dandylion by Lizzie Finlay

When the 'delightfully different, bright yellow and rather scruffy' Dandylion joins Miss Gardener's neat and tidy class, chaos and fun follow. But after one messy incident too many he's told to go home - he just doesn't fit in. It doesn't take long, however, for everyone to realise that too much neatness and order isn't always a good thing and everyone's desperate for Dandylion to return! At last, Dandylion feels like a wildflower in the right place! This is an empowering story about friendship, diversity and finding your place.
