About the Author

Kyo Maclear is the author of many books for children, including Bloom: A Story of Fashion Designer Elsa Schiaparelli, and some for adults. When she was a little girl, she wanted very badly to be a fashion designer. She spent countless hours drawing odd dresses, including a very special cloud dress. Her style muses include her mother, Patti Smith, the residents of Moominvalley, and anyone with a sense of casual and androgynous flair. Though she loved writing about Schiaparelli’s signature color, shocking pink, Kyo’s own favorite color is blue. She plants her garden with flowers in all shades of blue, and in spring when they bloom, it’s a blue extravaganza. Kyo makes her home in Toronto, where she lives with her two sons and husband, a musician. You can find her at www.kyomaclearkids.com.

Editorial Review

“The deadpan text works beautifully with speech balloons that extend characterizations. Fleck's whimsical, bold, bright, acrylic illustrations set the tone perfectly for this lighthearted tale . . . Though clearly a message about the dangers of overscheduling children, the lesson goes down easily; caregivers may even take note.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A gentle and pleasing narrative . . . Dreamy Flo will be a sympathetic figure to many children, and her example will encourage adults and kids to ‘get floppy,’ at least on a lazy Sunday.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
