“This delightful book combines humor and mycological expertise in a presentation that should capture the imagination…it will especially appeal to pre-teens, but will educate older children and adults as well…This is perhaps the best book available to junior mycologists in North America.” North American Mycological Association Bulletin

This is a remarkably simple, entertaining and informative book on fungi…Twenty-six pages of beautiful, full-page, black-and-white line drawings show all different kinds of fungi at their best…Each illustration is paired with a few paragraphs describing the fungus…Enter the `Tree-Eaters’ and the `Vegetable Caterpillar’ to delight the curious mind…a wonderful natural science resource.”
