Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"Once upon a time, there was a king who had seven children." So begins this rediscovered treasure by A. A. Milne, never before published in picture-book form.After having six sons, the King and his Queen are finally blessed with a daughter. But a fairy bestows a gift upon the newborn princess: "Let Daffodil the gardens fill. Wherever you go, flowers shall grow." Soon young Daffodil begins to walk, dotting flowers across the King's favorite courtyard and the perfectly manicured paths. How is she finally able to run free and play like other children--without ruining the royal garden? Readers will be charmed to see how the little hill at the far end of the grounds becomes the Magic Hill, not only for Princess Daffodil but for all the boys and girls of the countryside.Isabel Bodor Brown, whose family has shared this tale for three generations, here offers lighthearted ink-and-wash illustrations that make this a wonderful gift book for readers of all ages.
Princess Daffodil's fairy godmother's wish for her is that flowers should grow wherever she goes.
