A travel guide to the possible routes of seven dandelion seeds. When a dandelion disperses its seeds, each travels a different path. One seed lands in a city sidewalk crack, another on a muddy stream bed. A third seed never gets a chance to grow--it gets gobbled up by a bird. The miniature parachutes that survive start a new generation of plants. Information at the end of the book answers factual questions readers will have, ranging from folklore about dandelions to the length of the taproot. Hariton takes her inspiration from dandelion fluff; her pastel watercolors have a fuzzy, airy quality that makes even friendlier the ""family history"" of this commonplace sunny-faced weed.
