Fungarium Summary

Fungarium by Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

Illustrator Katie Scott returns to the Welcome to the Museum series with exquisite, detailed images of some of the most fascinating living organisms on this planet - fungi. From the fungi we see on supermarket shelves to fungi like penicillium that have shaped human history, this is the definitive introduction to what fungi are and just how vital they are to the world's ecosystem. Created in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Fungarium Reviews

Mushrooms are curious and fascinating life forms brought to the page by author and senior research leader at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, England, Ester Gaya. Fungi can be food, poison, and medicine -and sometimes all three. Thanks to Katie Scott's artwork, this gorgeous book presents like the botanical specimens of old children's book form and includes the common and the uncommon, what fungi are, and how important they are to the world's ecosystem. It's oversized (11.06 x 14.88 inches!) and hardcover, making it a great gift for little nature lovers who want to learn. Kids who love this will also love other books in the Welcome to the Museum series including Botanicum and Antatomicum. * Red Tricycle *
