Tom doesn't see a daffodil in the many stages of the bulb's growth but he does see a desert, green fingers and a street light, among other things. When a simple accident threatens the daffodil's survival, Mr Yilmaz and Tom join forces to ensure its rescue.
That's not a daffodil is a delightful tale about nurturing a plant from bulb to flower but it's also a story of patience, attention to detail and growing relationships. It's the perfect preschooler introduction to gardening and likely to be a reread favourite, especially from autumn to winter, when daffodils do their magic.
