A childrens book that describes some of the unusual and little-known aspects of many common and a few exotic plants, all of which can be grown in a home garden. Included are the compass plant--with leaves that point toward the north and south poles, carnivorous plants, plants that give off light, others that respond to touch or to gravity, and one that can be anesthetized with chloroform. Filled with exquisite line drawings.
