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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dandelion Wine-childhood life lessons Dandelion Wine is a little known book by renowned author, Ray Bradbury. This is a tale of a summer in the life of Douglas, a young pre-adolescent boy who spends the summer discovering the world around him in a small 1928 town. Along the way he runs into a host of colourful characters and learns many important lessons about life. The lessons and observations in this book are wonderful for people of all ages to read about, and I guarantee you will be deeply moved by this story of childhood innocence. I reccommend this book to anyone who is in touch with their inner child or who wants to be again.
