Dandelion Wine is the story of the summer of Douglas Spaulding recounted in a series of vignettes that form a loose mosaic story. The titular drink, brewed by Spaulding's grandfather, comes to serve as a representation of packing all of summer's memories, sorrows, and joys into a single bottle. Each story focuses on a different facet of Douglas's summer experience, with themes ranging from young love to the power of imagination.
