)-- The inspiration for book, Gabriella and Her Bouquet of Friends, is Jerry Di Leo's little girl, Gabriella, who is the title character in the story. The character was illustrated as a resemblance of the real Gabriella. The book tells the story of a little girl and her friends who are flower characters named Daisy, Tulip, Rose, Daffodil, Petunia, and Pansy. Gabriella and her flower friends learn from each other about their respective flowers as they plant in Gabriella's garden.
The illustrations by Silvina Moldanado are beautifully drawn in rich, bold, crisp colors that are sure to please children and adults alike.
Gabriella and Her Bouquet of Friends is available in paperback or download. A 2011 calendar based on the book is also available.
