Stephen Wicks and Mark Welford have a passion for flowers and opened their store, Bloomsbury's Flowers, in London's Covent Garden in December 1994. Mark and Stephen have arranged flowers for Jamie Oliver and Jennifer Saunders, among others.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-- Full of bright, colorful photos and illustrations, this book provides an apt, anecdotal snapshot of the variety and function of flowers. A handbook-sized volume with topical organization, it will entice and invite youngsters to see the beauty around them. Diversity and adaptation are front and center. In the beginning dual-page introduction, readers are told to draw, examine, and dissect flowers to gain a true understanding. Double-page treatments are devoted to discussions of color, pollen, or specific environments, to name a few. This is not a coherent well-developed study of the subject, but rather a progression of little "tastes" that presumably will create an appetite for later learning or provide the hook for more real research. It's a browser's feast, with little detail and no depth. The lack of further reading, however, is a major drawback for a book that seems to stake its success on being a vivid signpost at the beginning of the road. --Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, VA
