Summary
When Daddy spots a solitary weed in his lawn, he's appalled (along with all of his neighborhood friends). But his daughter Sweetie has fallen in love with the beautiful flower, even going so far as to name it Charlotte. Racing against time and the mockery of his friends, Daddy has to find a way to get rid of the errant dandelion without breaking his little girl's heart.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A lion must overcome peer pressure and his own predatory instincts for the love of his daughter in this hilarious picture book in which wild animals (including a lion, a giraffe, a hippo, and a monkey) tend to their flawless suburban lawns. The action starts when the lion spots that dreaded interloper a dandelion growing in the middle of his yard. He dashes out with his hedge clippers, but his cub, Sweetie, steps in to introduce him to her new best friend: the dandelion! The lion's neighbors insist that he kills the weed, which the lion attempts to do, using his prowling skills to sneak up on it, but Sweetie is always there, playing with her flower friend. Showcasing an expressive dandelion that can mock as well as dance, Santoso's bright, playful illustrations, done digitally with hand-drawn pencil textures, are the perfect complement to Dyckman's hilariously over-the-top story. With a nail-biting climax and heartwarming resolution, this one is sure to delight a wide range of readers.--Connie Fletcher Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "It's love vs. lawn care in this laugh-out-loud story by Dyckman (Wolfie the Bunny). When a lone dandelion appears in a lion father's front yard, he's determined to remove it. There's just one problem: his daughter, Sweetie, has gotten there first. "Her name is Charlotte," she says, patting the bloom. "She's my best friend." Egged on by friends and neighbors, Daddy hilariously tries to fell the weed with nunchakus, a jackhammer, a cannon, and more, but Sweetie foils his efforts at every turn. He finally has a clear shot when Sweetie heads to swim class, then realizes he can't go through with it. It seems the weed will live-that is, until Daddy drops his shears, mangling it beyond repair. When the cub returns and discovers her drooping friend, her father shows Sweetie how to blow dandelion seeds around the yard, "dandy" consequences or no. Layered with handmade pencil textures, digital illustrations by Santoso (Wishtree) play up the drama of Daddy's outsize emotions and outrageous attempts to expel the dandelion. A well-paced comic tale for all ages. Ages 4-8. Author's agent: Scott Treimel, Scott Treimel New York. Illustrator's agent: Justin Rucker, Shannon Assoc. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
