Dandelion Wine is Bradbury's third published novel and is considered by many to be his masterpiece. With prose close to poetry, although it lacks many of the elements of a classic fantasy novel, it evokes the same magic. A true gem among Bradbury's vast body of work. Hold summer in your hand, pour summer in a glass, a tiny glass of course, the smallest tingling sip for children; change the season in your veins by raising glass to lip and tilting summer in.
