That's Not A Daffodil by Elizabeth Honey

One day Mr Yilmaz from next door gives Tom a daffodil bulb. ‘That’s not a daffodil,’ says Tom. ‘That’s an onion.’ So they plant it together and wait to see what happens.

Satisfying pictures to pore over tell a story with neighbourliness, the love of growing things, and a fresh and quirky imagination at its heart. Even the end-papers celebrate simple outdoor play.

Recommended for 2–5 year olds.
