Chapter One

One sunny spring morning, after many days of rain, a young dandelion sprouted up through the tall green grass.

Quietly, it yawned and spread open its yellow petals.

As the small dandelion stretched up to the clear blue sky, he told all the plants around him how beautiful he was.

The rose bush agreed. She told the dandelion that his petals glowed brilliantly in the sunshine.

Dandelion wanted to be the most beautiful flower in the garden.

As he grew, he saw a hill on the other side of the garden where the grass seemed greener than where he grew.

He told the rose bush that if he grew on the other side of the garden, he would be even more beautiful.

The rose bush told the dandelion that the grass only looked greener on the other side of the garden.

The dandelion didn't listen, He pulled up his roots and slowly inched his way to the other side of the garden.

He inched over the large grey stones,

Around the bright yellow daffodils,

And past the busy red-breasted robins.
