New Book Wednesday: Fantastic Flowers


Fantastic Flowers
by Susan Stockdale
With engaging rhymes and bright, bold images, award-winning author and illustrator Susan Stockdale introduces young readers to a wide range of unusual flowers. Can you imagine a flower that looks like a ballerina? A baboon? A napping baby?  It’s hard to believe that these flowers are real—but they are!

From the author of Spectacular Spots and Stripes of All Types comes this brilliant bouquet of 17 flowers from around the world that resemble everything from flying birds to laughing bumblebeesFantastic Flowers encourages object identification and inspires children to observe nature more closely.  Stockdale also provides information on the pollination process in the back matter as well as a flower identification guide that includes real pictures of every flower illustrated in the book.

“Optically striking… This is a book to closely pore over” —Kirkus Reviews
