What happens to the poor plants when people snip off the pretty rose flowers, pull the petals out of daisies, or tear off a delicate poppy head? They go to Flower Heaven, of course, where they are cared for and kept safe by the gentle flower angels.
This delightful, beautifully illustrated book tells the story of one evening in Flower Heaven, as the flower angels welcome and tend to their new patients.

Else Wenz-Viëtor (1882-1973) was probably the best known children’s book illustrator in 1920s and 1930s Germany. She was born in Sorau, now in western Poland, and it was from her grandfather that she acquired her love of plants and animals which would become favorite themes in her pictures. In 1903, she illustrated the first of more than 150 books. She also worked as a freelance artist in the interior design industry.
