I do wish that I could have been more enthusiastic: there's lots to commend the book. There's an excellent explanation of pollination and pollinators, for example, and when I finished reading I did feel more knowledgeable. It's a book which I'm pleased to have read, delighted that it's available, but not certain that I would want to own. I'd like to thank the publishers for sending a copy to the Bookbag.
If you've have an interest in botany you might enjoy [[The Invention of Nature: The Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt, the Lost Hero of Science by Andrea Wulf]]. Moving away from botany we can also recommend [[On the Origin of Species: The Illustrated Edition by Charles Darwin and David Quammen (Author and Editor)]]. Staying with Kew Gardens, we ''loved'' [[The Kew Gardens Children's Cookbook: Plant, Cook, Eat by Joe Archer and Caroline Craig]]. You might also like the [[Botanicum Activity Book by Katie Scott and Kathy Willis|sticker book]]. Adults might also appreciate [[Garlands, Conkers and Mother-Die: British and Irish Plant-Lore by Roy Vickery]].
