This book encourages children to celebrate the things that make them unique, and feel proud of who they are. Lizzie Finlay's illustrations are both gentle and magical. I love the way she adds more colour as the story goes along, showing how Dandylion lights up everyone's lives. I'd definitely recommend this book to all parents of young children.

This book has everything - imagination, a subtle message, stunning illustrations and a sense of humour. Lizzie Finlay has been so clever in details such as Dandylion's grandfather being a grandfather clock and the look on the teachers face when she was cross with the children for drawing moustaches on their faces. So many books I read to my children to delight them, this entertains me too! No children's bookshelf should be without "Dandylion"

I have 3 boys aged 1, 3 and 4 and they all love this book. The illustrations are eye catching and the storyline is fantastic .... a must have book. I've read a load of children's book and this is the 1st one that has inspired me to leave a review *****

Bought this for my circle time in Primary school. Children love the story and a great PSHE resource for showing that those who are different can be accepted by others but they need to realise that it takes give and take on both sides. Lovely story and good illustrations.

This book is a charming story that gently suggests how we can embrace differences in who we are as part of the wonder of being alive and how to welcome others as our friends.

There are some more hidden themes too, for instance the importance of telling someone you trust when your troubled, or; being brave when things are not easy being yourself; even some of the challenges that can face children when moving schools, or being introduced to a new class member.

I really love the illustration style and the way the images progress through the book, they express how the differences between children and people bring colour and interest to life.
I especially love the moment when the teacher has to turn away because though she's supposed to be angry, she's got the giggles... a lovely way to show the dynamic that some children will recognise between the authority of the teacher and an occasional glimpse of who that teacher is as a person.

It's a good book for infants and younger junior aged children. It is a read that gently, even tenderly, leads the reader through some early real-life challenges in a wholesome way.

Altogether, a read that can be enjoyed by children, parents and teachers, for the fun that it expresses and the book's suggestion that developing embracing friendships is a really positive, colourful and fun way to live.

I bought a copy for myself and one for my niece and nephew they love it - especially the class pictures at the beginning and the end.

I love dandelion, I love the illustrations and I love the message. This book, with its funny, sweet, adorable illustrations always puts a smile on my son and my face.
And it brought a whole new unexpected appreciation for dandelions. My son used to pick them me as flowers and we'd put them in a glass and admire how beautiful a flower they really were.

My daughter (4) and I just got back from hearing Lizzie Finlay read this story to us in a cosy little second-hand bookshop in Didsbury. There, snuggled next to boxes of paperbacks, we met Dandylion for the first time. He's delightful and special and he's just being himself, he's the kind of character I want to share with my children again and again (please, nice people at Red Fox, please let Dandylion be the next Paddington, with lots of new adventures...) The illustrations are gorgeous, the gentle message of the book, to remain open to surprises, is finely crafted, and my youngest (2) was spotting little things in the background that I hadn't noticed before. Here's to more Wildflower Days at our house.

This is a beautifully told and a beautifully illustrated book for young and old alike. A story about how being different can be hard at times, but also how difference is something that should be celebrated too. It's a book that can affirm young people who might feel their difference heavily and one that is a wonderful reminder to those of us who might have learnt to fit in, that fitting in isn't what it's all about.
