The Flower That Wouldn’t Grow is Released as New Authors First Publication

Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publishers Ltd. Take on new Canadian Author Victoria D’Anna for the release of her debut children’s book The Flower That Wouldn’t Grow. The book is set to launch April 29th 2021, but has already generated some buzz through preorder sales. It will be available for purchase on online platforms such as Amazon and in store at major retailers.

Victoria D’Anna is a graduate of the University of Windsor where she studied Visual Arts and English Literature. As an Artist and Writer she utilized her creative skills to write and illustrate her children’s picture book. Her debut book showcases a minimalist aesthetic with a strong moral message that is prevalent throughout the book.


The Flower That Wouldn’t Grow unpacks the pace of personal growth and the importance of having patience in every stage of life. The target audience for this book is young to older children (ages 0-12). Through the imagery and symbolism of flowers Victoria acknowledges the beauty of growing at your own pace.

In a society that is relying more and more on social media, it is creating new attitudinal barriers such as unrealistic beauty standards that are impacting children at younger ages than ever before.
