The Big Book of the Blooms by Yuval Zommer
What does a venus fly trap eat?
How strong is a giant water lily?
Does a cactus flower?
Yuval Zommer answers these questions and more and introduces little ones to all kinds of colourful, carnivorous, weird and wonderful flowering plants from around the world. It opens with introductory spreads on how to be a botanist; how to recognise different types of flowers; the life-cycle of a plant; flower anatomy; and the seven types of animal pollinators including bats, birds and beetles.
Illustrations within various habitats, are focused on specific varieties of plants, including the carnivorous venus flytrap, the giant water lily and the weird and wonderful corpse flower. Readers will enjoy learning about different edible flowers and why flowers are fragrant or colourful, not to mention grisly details about carnivorous and poisonous flowers.
