Format: Paperback
This is a fun book to read if you like symbolism, and even if you don't, it's fun to read the poems in the back. In this, almost every flower, clover and herb has a meaning and just about any flower you can you'll find in here. The illustrations are sweet, and this is a great reference if you're looking for something sentimental to give a friend.

This is a review of the paperback version.
The book presented in the LOOK INSIDE! preview of the book, IS NOT THE SAME EDITION AS THE ONE YOU WILL GET IF YOU BUY THIS TRASH.
There are no pictures. Instead of a picture, you get a line of text that says "Image of flower", or "Image not available".
There is no formatting to the text, not so much as an indentation.
It's criminal.
If Amazon knew how bad this version of her great work actually is, they would never be selling it.
This is the worst piece of trash I ever bought on Amazon. Avoid at all costs.

Format: Hardcover
Greenaway was famous for her fanciful, humorous, delicately colored drawings of child life. This little book was originally written in 1885, and it lists over 200 plants and their meaning in alphabetical order with 85 illustrations as well as some poems in the back of the book.

The only problem I have with this book is that the printing is very small.

This is the only negative review I have ever given an ebook, but even at one dollar, it is $1.50 overpriced. I have a couple of paper copies of this book. It consists of parallel columns with flower names on the left, and their supposed meanings on the right. This digital edition so scrambles the text that it is not possible to determine which meaning goes with what flower, making the ebook useless. Highly unrecommended.

Format: Paperback
This book has just the right size to be perfect. It is advertised as being a reproduction of the original pocket sized books that the Regency and Victorian women carried in their purses, and it succeeds. If you are a fan of such things, this is a great book. It is small as lightweight, so you can carry it wherever you go. The only thing that I can say, it I wish it came in a more believable cover. What it has is glossy soft cover, so it cannot be passed as an original.

Very poor in the Kindle version. Hard to follow and to interpret the information. I would not recommend it. Sorry!

I was enthralled in this old books illustrations and the content. Even my husband who is not Kindle or computer literate was enthused about the beauty of the book.

Not quite what I expected, but a good book if that's what you are looking for. Just make sure before you purchase it that it is the kind of book you want to read.
