When Tom is given a brown bulb, he says, 'That's not a daffodil! That's an onion.' This is a cheeky and satisfying story with playful repetition and build up of anticipation that will make little children request this story again and again.

HONOUR BOOK: CBCA Book of the Year, Early Childhood, 2012

When Tom's neighbour gives him a brown bulb, Tom can't believe it will flower. 'That's not a daffodil!' says Tom. 'Well,' says the old gardener. 'Let's plant it and see.'

Elizabeth Honey has created a playful story that little children will enjoy again and again - about an inventive boy, a kindly gardener, a growing friendship and the promise of a bulb.

A stage production of That's not a Daffodil! with music, dance and puppetry was performed at Metanoia Mechanics Institute in Melbourne and at the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival in 2016.
