About the book:
In this allegory of migration, the dandelions – who are just weeds after all – are forced to move on when they are confronted with tools, machines and potions. So they float, taking their hopes with them, and go on a journey to find a peaceful place to reseed and settle.

Reviews:

'The simplicity of this allegorical story of immigration is a great way to introduce or begin to explain issues that affect so many in our world today.' Children's Books Ireland, Reading Together with Refugees Reading Guide

'Thought-provoking and ultimately uplifting, this is a story that I guarantee will stay with you after it’s finished.' Books for Little Bookworms

'A seemingly simple story about seed dispersal that offers a good starting point for talking with very young children about humans who, in times of crisis, see no option but to flee their homes and seek sanctuary in another country.' Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub
