Dandelion's Dream

By Yoko Tanaka
Illustrated by Yoko Tanaka

What if a dandelion became a dandy lion? With enchanting, ethereal art, this is a wordless story where reality is transformed by imagination.

In a meadow filled with dandelion buds just about to flower, one dandelion blooms into a real lion. Roots and leaves unfurl into four tiny paws and a long tail with a fluffy yellow tuft. What a great, wide world there is to explore when you have paws instead of roots! There are fast trains to ride, regal ships to sail, and cities with lights as bright as Dandelion’s field in full bloom. But will a real lion ever be content to go back to being a rooted dandelion?

  • Yoko Tanaka’s exquisite illustrations take us on an adventure where even the smallest seeds contain cosmic dreams.
  • Fans of wordless picture books will delight in this soft, charming story.
  • With a minimal palette and graphic-novel like panels, Yoko Tanaka has conjured a dream-like atmosphere filled with possibility.
