A touching story that celebrates the beauty of nature and true friends is what you’ll discover in Golden Daffodils by Liam Maher.
Paddy, the gardener, looks after his beautiful flower garden. Each year he hopes to take home first prize at the Spring Flower Show. His feathered friend, Tupo Hoopoe encourages him with wonderful compliments. One day Tupo Hoopoe spies a fairy in the garden. She drops her bag of magic fairy dust when a bee frightens her away. Tupo Hoopoe decides to help Paddy by sprinkling the magic dust over the daffodils. But the morning of the Spring Flower Show comes and the beautiful golden daffodils have been stolen. Tupo Hoopoe races to get them back in time.
Golden Daffodils by Liam Maher is the perfect story for anyone who appreciates nature and adventure. Maher has taken his love of gardening and turned it into a lovely story for young readers to enjoy. Readers get a chance to experience the special bond between Paddy and Tupo Hoopoe. They witness the great lengths that Paddy’s feathered friend is willing to go to not only to try and help him win first prize, but also to get the daffodils back once they are stolen.
Marina Movshina created the artwork for Golden Daffodils. I’ve seen some of her work in the past, and she does another wonderful job with this one. her soft, warm colors blend so nicely with the beautiful story that Maher created.
I’ll definitely be sharing this story with my girls, both of whom help me in the garden.
