The Girl Who Cried Flowers and Other Tales based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I discovered this book when it was first published, I was a young adult. It surprises me to find it classisfied solely as Children's Literature. The stories are imaginative, simply told and deeply moving. The themes cross generational lines. I would recommend this for any adult who who still appreciates the wonder and magic of fairy tales. Beautiful illustrations.
