Meet Poppy--if you can spot her among the wildflowers! Poppy loves nature, and can be found carrying on conversations with ladybugs or singing with cicadas, but good luck spotting her indoors and around people! She's a master of camouflage, always finding a way to blend into her surroundings. Some might call her a wallflower. At a party, Poppy stays out of sight. But when a very special bug lands on the cake, Poppy can't resist popping out to see it. Soon, the rest of the guests notice the beautiful dragonfly, and Poppy, too. Maybe she's not a wallflower after all, but a wildflower.



I thought it was an interesting book it was about a girl who used to talk to bugs Poppy Because it was about a shy girl who used to talk to bugs yes because it was a good story

I liked all the red flowers. I liked the poppies and the sunflowers. Also, the orange trees. I enjoyed finding Poppy when she was hiding. I also liked it because I saw a big love heart on Poppy’s dress.
