"This showstopper of a picture book will wake kids up to the wonders of the botanical underpinnings and incredible aspects of the science of mushrooms...Pictures and words fizz with the magic that surrounds the quiet work of mushrooms and should send kids looking to learn more." --School Library Journal, starred review

"In lyrical, attention-grabbing language, [Zimmermann] describes mushrooms’ bizarre shapes and colors and remarkable smells...Star-dusted double-page illustrations convey Green's enthusiasm for the subject." --Kirkus Reviews

What can smell like bubble gum, glow neon green at night, be poisonous and yet still eaten by humans, and even help create rain? The answer is mushrooms! From their hidden networks underground to the fruiting body above, mushrooms can do incredible things. But don't call them plants--mushrooms are fungi. They're more closely related to animals like you! Through lyrical text and colorful, detailed artwork, the wonderful, mysterious, and sometimes bizarre world of mushrooms is explored. Back matter includes a glossary, additional mushroom facts, and a science activity.
