Description - Green: The Story of Plant Life on Our Planet by Nicola Davies

A magnificent look at the science of plants from the internationally bestselling and multi award-winning team behind Tiny, Lots and Grow.

This tree doesn’t look like it’s doing very much: it just stands there in the sunlight, big and GREEN. But this tree is busy... Starting with the secret workings of a tree, this book transports readers billions of years into the past; back to the moment when plant life first appeared on our planet. Covering its evolution, the steady emergence of fossil fuels and the extraordinary communities of plants around the world today, Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton combine essential biology with a powerful message – a call to protect the most precious colour on Earth ... GREEN.

“Reveals the miraculous-ness of science with sheer sharp edge precision and decorative charm.”
The Sunday Times on Tiny.

“Clear, direct, involving text, coupled with vivid, delicate illustrations make for a truly special work of non-fiction. Guardian on Lots

“This beautiful volume uses simple, crystal-clear text and exquisite illustrations… A remarkable and very special work of non-fiction.” Independent on Grow.
