The Sunflower Sword (Andersen Press Picture Books)
Title: The Sunflower Sword (Andersen Press Picture Books)
Author: Mark Sperring
In a land marked by endless fighting between knights and dragons, a mother gives her eager little boy a sunflower rather than the sword he requests and when he wields it against a real dragon, new understanding begins.
In a land filled with fire and smoke and endless fighting, where knights fight dragons, there lives a little knight who wants to be big like the others, and fight like the others, and have a sword like the others. But his mother won’t let him. Instead of a sword, she gives him a sunflower, which, as it turns out, can be mightier than a sword.
