A fully illustrated tour around the world in pursuit of the world's most incredible plants - from the biggest to the smelliest to the hardest-working - this highly entertaining and informative volume is the perfect book for all aspiring junior botanists.

Journey across 40 incredible habitats around the world to discover the biggest, boldest, and stinkiest plants


Without plants there would be no life on Earth, but most people are blind to their impact. This stylish and informative introduction to plants sets out to cure 'plant blindness' by introducing children to 66 amazing plants from the six major climactic zones around the world.


From the smelliest, such as the massive Titan Arum of the Indonesian rainforest, which stinks of rotting flesh to attract insects, to the hardest-working, including peat moss, an overlooked bog plant that helps protect our planet by trapping carbon dioxide, readers will learn about the vital role of plants in Nature through detailed, vibrant illustrations and fascinating facts. Children will also learn how to use their new-found knowledge of the plant's natural environment to care for the plants around them and at home.


Fully researched, written, and vetted by expert botanists from around the world, this book teaches children about plants in the context of their natural environment, and is ideal for geography and biology curricular tie ins, as well as being a book that will inspire children to love and care for the plants around them. This is the perfect compendium for plant-lovers, budding gardeners, and would-be botanists and nature-lovers alike.
