CBCA's Notable Australian Early Childhood Book 2012

Product Description

A playful story that children will enjoy again and again about an inventive boy, a kindly gardener, a growing friendship, and the promise of a bulb

When Tom is given a brown bulb, he says, 'That's not a daffodil! That's an onion.' A cheeky and satisfying story with playful repetition and build up of anticipation that will make little children request this story again and again.

When Tom's neighbour gives him a brown bulb, Tom can't believe it will flower. 'That's not a daffodil!' says Tom. 'Well,' says the old gardener. 'Let's plant it and see.'

Elizabeth Honey has created a playful story that little children will enjoy again and again - about an inventive boy, a kindly gardener, a growing friendship and the promise of a bulb.
