Chrysanthemum is a funny and honest school story about teasing, self-esteem, and acceptance to share all year round.

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lillys Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kittens First Full Moon, Chrysanthemum is a dont-miss classic, especially for back to school.

Chrysanthemum thinks her name is absolutely perfect--until her first day of school. Youre named after a flower! teases Victoria. Lets smell her, says Jo. Chrysanthemum wilts. What will it take to make her blossom again?

This popular picture book has sold more than a million copies and was named a Notable Book for Children by the American Library Association. Perfectly executed in words and illustration, Chrysanthemum exemplifies Henkess talent for creating true picture stories for young audiences.--The Horn Book

This is an ideal break-the-ice book for the first week of school. It get children thinking about and bonding with their own names and the names of everyone else in the class, and its the perfect vehicle for starting a discussion about treating classmates with tolerance, kindness, and compassion.
