KIRKUS REVIEW

Again that unbeatable combination Vernon Quinn and Marie A. Lawson have provided a delightful Christmas gift for everyone with a touch of whimsy and a leaning toward flowers. These have all the charm of Kipling's Just So Stories, all the whimsy of Milne, but all the information of a history too. Read how your favorite flowers got their names, the myths and legend of various countries, the romance of the forget-me-not, the warning of the ""Fox bells"", the two lilies on which a throne hung and the dream-woman's larkspur. You'll become a child again as you read these fairy tales. And why not use them for children too. It's an excellent way to teach them about their garden flowers.
