The lonely daisy

In which a little daisy has hope, but then despair.

Once upon a time there was a little daisy.

She lived all alone and was very lonely. "I wish someone would be my friend," she said to herself.

One day, a little donkey stopped by.
"Hello, my name is Lucia. Will you be my friend?"
"Oh yes! I need a friend, Lucia."

A little goat walked by.
"Friend? I was thinking how wonderful you would be for breakfast."
Lucia cried. So did the daisy.

The end.

Geeze, I love the name Mrs. Button. That would be a good donkey name....
Thanks for the nice comments. I would LOVE to do things in UK. But have not as far as shows. I've been told my work is very European in feel, maybe more so my children's illustrations. I guess it's all the wonderful books my parents bought me as a child.I've always loved Roger la Borde cards too. SO maybe someday, Mrs. Button!
