Don Freeman - Dandelion


Author: Don Freeman

  • AGES 5 - 7 
  • Genre Classics
Dandelion gets invited to a "come as you are" tea-and-taffy party at Jennifer Giraffe's house! So, to impress his friends, Dandelion turns himself into a stylish, dapper, dandy lion. Smart, snazzy and sophisticated — what a sight for sore eyes he is! But he gets an unexpected surprise when he shows up at Jennifer Giraffe's door and his hostess doesn't recognize him! When the door is closed abruptly in his face, he wanders off and soon finds himself in a terrible rainstorm. Soaking wet, the scruffy lion is reduced back to his old loveable self, the Dandelion that his friends love so well. "Dandy" is back! Returning to the party, the humbled lion and his friends share loads of laughter about Dandelion's silly get-up!Born in San Diego, California, writer and illustrator Don Freeman moved to New York City in the 1940's to study art while making a living as a jazz trumpeter. He died in 1978, leaving his beloved audience with a treasury of classic children's stories. This book is full of Freeman's own fun images, and provides a valuable message for young children, as well. It's a "dandy!"
