About
Go beyond the basics of botany with this introduction to the strangest, coolest things plants can do.

You might already know that plants can turn light into food-- but did you know that some plants have to bend or climb to get to the light?

Join Spike E. Prickles, the charistmatic cactus host of this book, to learn about all the incredible things plants can do. From wet swamps to dry deserts to the arctic tundra, plants have adapted in a wide variety of ways to survive in all kinds of environment.

Bold photographs and bright illustrations highlight all sorts of surprising plant powers: defending themselves with sharp spines, regrowing from small cuttings, hiding from predators, surviving forest fires, and much more! Amazing Plant Powers is a fun, kid-friendly introduction to the wide, wild world of plants-- and why we need them.

Includes a glossary of important terms, and suggestions for fun plant projects readers can try on their own.
