The Land of the Blue Flower

Frances Hodgson Burnett

Book Overview: 

The Land of the Blue Flower was not called by that name until the tall, strong, beautiful King Amor came down from his castle on the mountain crag and began to reign.

And as the little King sat upright, enraptured, he saw that from the dazzling brightness at the edge of the world there leaped forth a ball of living gold and fire, and even he knew that the sun had risen.

"At every day's dawn it leaps forth like that," said the Ancient One.
"Let us watch together and I will tell you stories of it."

So they sat by the battlement and the stories were told. They were stories of the small grains lying hid in the dark earth waiting for the golden heat of the sun to draw them forth into life until they covered the tilled fields with waving wheat to make bread for the world; they were stories of the seeds of fair flowers warmed and ripened until they burst into scented blossoms; they were stories of the roots of trees and the rich sap drawn upward by the heat until great branches and thick leafage waved in the summer air; th. . . Read More

Nice allegory to read with and discuss with young children.

A young king is set to take over a land of famine and disorder, where everybody pretty much hates everybody. Oh, yes, and all the former kings have been named Mordreth, and they were all fierce and cruel. So the young king, whose name is Amor, gives out seeds which everybody in the kingdom has to pl

Ok, it's not really all that good. You should read The Secret Garden instead.

But since I believe that the sort of 'magic' in here is possible, though of course to a much lesser degree, I loved it. That is to say, raising a child up in the fresh air will be much more likely to result in one healthie

downloaded this because it features prominently in greydon clark's 1994 sci-fi/action trash classique 'dark future'. a king tricks his people into caring for their environment and each other, all their problems disappear in the peace and joy that results. sort of a coincidence i read this right now,

L'angolo dei classici nasce dalla voglia di farvi conoscere letture dimenticate nel tempo, nascoste nei cassetti impolverati della memoria.
Secondo racconto che leggo di questa autrice, Frances H. Burnett è stata un'importante scrittrice nel campo della lettera

WOW this book is not well known and it was a beautiful story! I got teary-eyed!

loved the story and lesson learned.

Reminder of the good surrounding us. There is no time for hatred. There is no time for idleness. There is no time for anger. There is no time for unkind thoughts.

I'm focusing on goodness, kindness, and joy this year and take this lesson to heart: planting without seeds.

This is a small, short book about a good king and how he changed his kingdom. This book was only 92 pages long but had a good feel to it. The author is the same author who wrote "The Secret Garden".

I usually enjoy old books by classic authors, but this one was a big disappointment.
