From the aster to the zinnia, Mrs. Peanuckle introduces very young children to 26 types of flowers from across the globe. For each one, she offers a single defining characteristic, some of them very surprising. Did you know that there are twice as many orchid species as bird species? It's true! Do flowers taste good? Birds, bees, and butterflies sure think so! You'll even find flowers in certain teas. With bold, colourful pages, strong graphic art, and exciting design, these flowers are certain to be remembered by the children and adults who share this book.
Mrs. Peanuckle loves to write, talk to animals and birds, and putter in her garden. She has a vast assortment of children and grandchildren (some of them pets and some of them imaginary). She also collects rocks, shells, books, and eccentric friends. When she is not traveling and exploring the universe, you can find her cooking and eating while singing in her magical cabin in the woods. Most of all, she loves to laugh.
