Aspen and Spruce find a strange plant in the corner of the greenhouse. The children water the plant and re-pot it. They do everything they can to make the tender seedling grow. They read poems to it, take it for a bike ride and a trip to the seaside. Regardless of their efforts the plant remains small. But in the garden a different kind of sprout begins to grow. What is this plant’s secret?

Illustrated with the most delicious gouache paintings by the ALMA-nominated Marika Maijala, The Magic Flower is a gentle philosophical story that ponders how important it is to let everyone grow in their own way.
