Editorial Reviews

Review

"A beautiful boy, the offspring of royal parents, grows up and is crowned king of a sad land that only he can lead to the path of peace and prosperity.

Hodgson Burnett has received much praise over the last century for "Little Lord Fauntleroy" and "The Secret Garden," but this story has slumbered in obscurity for more than 80 years. It was resuscitated by Griffith, who received a dusty copy from a friend a few years back.

The book has a New Age message of peace and cooperation that's in keeping with its publisher's usual fare, but no one can deny the timeliness of the story's message: Anger deflects us from the important tasks we face." -- Press-Telegram, February 7, 1994

"Sure to put stars into a young person's eyes." -- NQ, NAPRA ReVIEW, Holiday Issue 1993

"The Land of the Blue Flower" by Frances Hodgson Burnett, a classic story which has been out of print since 1938, weaves the magical tale of Amor, a young king who is orphaned. The book develops the theme of living in harmony with nature and demonstrates the healing power of love." --Science of Mind, August 1994

This was a beautiful story depicting the power of love and service.

I did order two copies of the paperback version since I was no longer able to find the nice edition, and what a disappointment the paperback edition is.

This charming fairytale by the author of the beloved _Secret Garden_ is not just for children, but is a kind of "spiritual tonic" for folks of all ages. Ever since discovering HJKramer's magical edition, I have turned to _Blue Flower_ during times of spiritual or physical depletion and have always felt uplifted and enlivened by its positive message and exquisite artwork.
The book came to me in a strange, "Heaven-directed" way, during a time of immense grief over the death of a relative. I was ripe for its insightful messages that, "If you fill your mind with a beautiful thought, there will be no room for an ugly one"; and "There is no time for anger..." I have always been bolstered by this particular edition, so gracefully illustrated by Judith Ann Griffith, and over the years have gifted a few special souls, adults and children alike, with copies of this delightful book.
The "blue flowers" at the heart of the story have gradually become a sort of shorthand-code between me and cherished friends/relatives; and on special occasions, we sometimes exchange "blue flowers" as a colorful reminder of truths taught in Frances Hodgson Burnett's tale. The "blue-flower code" is simple and speaks directly to the heart, saying, "We choose love, life, and joy over fear, bitterness, and grudges." (Given current global upheavals and conflicts, maybe certain folks in High Places would do well to read this little book and internalize its simple truths.)
_The Land of the Blue Flower_ is very enthusiastically recommended for hearts of all ages, and Kramer's gorgeous edition is sure to become a family favorite.

Though the story carries a brilliant message of hope for us all, if we can affirm our connection with the earth, it is the lovely illustrations that bring home this heart-felt promise.
On almost every page of this classic tale the artist has embellished the authors words with delightful and imaginative representations of the story.
For a timeless message of hope treat your children and yourself to this book.

My daughter fell in love with this book after checking it out at the library. The version she read was a beautiful picture book with pages and pictures as wonderful as the story. She had earned a treat and only wanted this book.

Let me just say how disappointing it is to open a box and find a small, flimsy paperback with not one, single picture! The cover pictured is the actual book cover and inside is small type covering pages with small margins. Only half of the pages are even printed; the book ends just over half-way through the pages of the book.

This is a beautiful story, and I realize that this is a rare publication, but it is still a letdown to find such a book especially at this price.

"There is no time for anger." this phrase has a wonderful meaning and is the center of the story. The Land of the Blue Flower is about a prince raised in the mountains by a an old scholar after his mothers death. he learns to respect nature and about the power of love. This is a GREAT read that EVERYONE should read. just buy it! its free on kindle. (FYI Burnett is lovely author. i recommed all her books to everyone who loved A Little Princess and The Secret Garden. buy this book!!)

I have bought several copies of this book previously and as the person comments below, it was a beautiful picture book with a beautiful paper illustrated jacket on the book. What is being offered here now, is not the same version of the book. Why Amazon stopped offering the beautiful version is a mystery, because I bought several copies of the beautiful version just a few years ago, so it is untrue that this book has been out of print since the 1930's. I did order two copies of the paperback version since I was no longer able to find the nice edition, and what a disappointment the paperback edition is. From the comments below, I would never order the above reprint of the original edition, and there are not enough pages available to preview to get any idea what it looks like inside. I wanted to give more copies of the really nice edition as very special gifts. What happened to it Amazon?

This was a beautiful story depicting the power of love and service. "There is no time for anger." This theme is repeated throughout the book and it tells a wonderful story of how a whole kingdom was changed, because they learned to create beauty which did not include squabbling, hate, or laziness. Highly recommend reading this book to your children. The principles taught in this book are powerful and if practiced by all could change every person's life.

Not much to this short tale, but it is very sweet and charming. I enjoyed reading it. Very simple and I wished it had more to the descriptions.
