Wildflowers is a whimsically written and illustrated story for younger readers by Ricardo Liniers Siri. Due out 6th April 2021 from TOON Books, it's 40 pages and will be available in hardcover format.

This is a sweetly and whimsically illustrated early reader book absolutely full of adventure and imagination. The story feels quite surreal at first (a plane crash, gigantic flowers, popcorn flavored snow and more) then sweeps the reader along to a wonderfully satisfying denouement and resolution. This will be a hit with both kids and their adults. 

The art is sublime; beautifully rendered in watercolor and inks by Liniers. The illustrations are full of small details which will provide a lot of fun for reading-time to hunt and find. This would also make a superlative classtime or library read.

Five stars. Such beautifully appealing art.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
