Olaf Hajek's fantastical and mesmerising art is familiar to many adults. Now young readers can enjoy his work while learning about the fascinating health benefits of flowers they encounter every day. Hajek's paintings spring to life, populated by insects, birds, fruit, and fairytales that illustrate the drama of the natural world. Accompanying each painting are engaging texts that explore various cultural and medicinal aspects of the flowers as well as their importance to artists, writers, and healers. As they learn how iris roots were used to alleviate teething pain in babies and how poppy plants led to the invention of the salt shaker, kids will also get to know a garden's worth of blooms-from wild roses to carnations and peonies to marigolds. Kids will look at flowers in a whole new light and will delight in this beautiful keepsake of botanical illustrations by a celebrated artist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It is perfect for browsing; open at any point, and a double-page spread offers a complete package of informative, often humorous, text on the verso and whimsical, colorful art on the recto...As stimulating as a blast of chicory root."-Kirkus

"Hajek's assertively whimsical illustrations of flowers-a dandy astride a sailboat, holding an enormous Echinacea bloom; a serene woman wearing a bellflower and perched sidesaddle on a goldfinch-anchor this curious compendium of floral folklore." -Publishers Weekly
