Warning: this book contains top-secret information about flowers! Prepare to be surprised by this funny and true introduction to some of nature's strangest plants.
Flowers are beautiful. They have bright colors, soft petals and sweet nectar. But that's not the whole truth. Flowers can be weird and one bee is here to let everyone know! Talking directly to the reader, a bee reveals how flowers are so much stranger than what we think. Did you know that there are some flowers that only bloom in the nighttime? Some flowers are spooky, and look like ghosts, or bats, or a monster's mouth. And while most flowers smell good, there are some that smell like dead meat, or even horse poop!
This hilarious and refreshing book explores the science of flowers and shows that these plants are not always just pretty and harmless, as we often think they are. They are fascinating, disgusting, complicated and amazing. Hardcover picture book for ages 4-8.
