There was once a beautiful flower and a little girl who loved it. She talked to it every morning on her way to school.

"filled with colour, creativity and warmth"

Illustrated with scratchy cross-hatching and bright figures, it shows scenes of school and home and the route between the two, contrasting the interior of a flat on an estate — filled with colour, creativity and warmth — with the chilly rooms of a grander detached house. Although it ends with a non-socially-distanced gathering, it is a helpful story for now about positive attitudes of mind, and the damage that our bitterness can do to ourselves and other people.
