The Magic Flower

Marika Maijala

Willow and Poppy find a strange plant in a corner of the greenhouse. The children put the plant in a pot, water it, and do everything they can to make the tender seedling grow. They read poems to it, take it for a bike ride, and a trip to the seaside. The plant remains small but in the garden, different kinds of vegetation begin to sprout. What is the plant’s secret? In the garden of the magic flower, people, animals and plants live side by side.

In the most magnificent watercolor, Marika Maijala has written and illustrated a philosophical story that makes the reader think about how important it is to let everyone grow at their own pace.
