Triplet Daffodil does not want to be as sweet as a flower, and she is sick and tired of constantly being mistaken for her sisters. With a papier-mâché crocodile head and a "Raaa raaa raaa chomp chomp chomp," Daffodil embarks on a day of getting dirty, biting trees, and playing with her food. One thing is for sure - everyone knows the crocodile is DAFFODIL, not Rose or Violet. But what is Daffodil to do when her crocodile head falls apart? Will she go back to being a pretty, clean little flower of a girl?
Bright illustrations enliven this charming story of a spunky heroine asserting herself as an individual.
