Chrysanthemum has a brand-new look! This modern classic by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten’s First Full Moon, has sold more than a million copies! Chrysanthemum is beloved by librarians, teachers, parents, and students alike.

Chrysanthemum thinks her name is absolutely perfect—until her first day of school. “You’re named after a flower!” teases Victoria. “Let’s smell her,” says Jo. Chrysanthemum wilts. What will it take to make her blossom again?

For nearly thirty years, Chrysanthemum has been a household and classroom favorite, and a refreshed cover design, larger trim size, and welcome letter from the author will bring the paperback edition of Kevin Henkes’s beloved classic to a whole new generation of young readers. Chrysanthemum is a celebration of diversity, self-esteem, and acceptance for every child who has ever felt out of place for being different.

The Horn Book said this ALA Notable Book is “Perfectly executed in words and illustration . . . .exemplifies Henkes’s talent for creating true picture stories for young audiences.”

Includes a letter from the author.
