Praise for Fantastic Flowers

"Optically striking. . . This is a book to closely pore over"—Kirkus Reviews "Stockdale's rhyming couplets are perfectly crafted. They're as delightful to read aloud as her clean, bright acrylic paintings are to look at."—School Library Journal "[A] handsome study of 'Fantastic flowers in all kinds of shapes'"—Publishers Weekly "This lively blend of imagination and science might send children scrambling to their backyards or neighborhood parks to see what else they can spot in flowers."—Booklist
