Dandelion Wine (Mass Market Paperbound)
In an age when literary recollections of childhood too often are painful and disturbing, it's a quiet delight to reread Bradbury's Dandelion Wine, the tale of a boy's twelfth summer in Green Town, Illinois, in 1928. His lyric prose of a time when every morning was brand new and summers were endless make this classic an all time favorite.— From Ann
The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting dinner. It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold-fuzzed bees. A magical, timeless summer in the life of a twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding remembered forever by the incomparable Ray Bradbury.
