Dandelion’s Dream by Yoko Tanaka; illustrated by Yoko Tanaka. 2020. Charcoal and digitally colored. Published by Candlewick Press.
Brief summary: Dandelion leaves the meadow of yellow flowers and rides on a train where she continues her journey on the back of a sheep. She keeps traveling until she reaches the city. Dandelion watches a film about airplanes which encourages her dream to ride on a real one. Dandelion changes which allows her to fly to the moon.
Comments: Dandelion is a flower that has four paws, a tail, and a lion’s head. I’ll probably see this character every time I come across a dandelion growing in my yard.
