—Publishers Weekly

“Ms. Heller’s colors and drawings are as electrifying as ever.”
—Los Angeles Times


The reason for a flower is to manufacture seeds, but Ruth Heller shares a lot more about parts of plants and their functions in her trademark rhythmic style.

A brilliantly beautiful book with jewel like illustrations of flowers, bees, birds, and more. The text is clear yet quite informative and plays a supporting role in conveying the visual information of the colorful drawings. A worthwhile classic.
