The Wicked Plants Colouring Book
Amy Stewart and Briony Morrow-Cribbs
A colouring book with a dark side
In The Wicked Plants Colouring Book, Amy Stewart and artist Briony Morrow-Cribbs bring colouring enthusiasts the 40 most menacing botanical atrocities from their New York Times bestseller Wicked Plants. Morrow-Cribbs’s exquisite etchings are now finely rendered colouring-book art and are paired with details from the original book.
Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, and written with Stewart’s trademark wit, each wonderfully creepy spread offers a fascinating portrait of the evildoers of the plant world, from the vine that ate the South (kudzu) to the weed that killed Lincoln’s mother (white snakeroot) to the world’s deadliest seed (rosary pea).
The perfect gift for the crime fiction writer in your life!
The not so secret life of poisonous plants are revealed in this deadly but charming little colouring book (relax your mind as you colour and plot the demise of the next victim in your new book.) The information – science fact and science fiction, is fascinating and paired with the exquisitely detailed drawings make for a unique gift for the writer or that difficult to buy for person; fun and informative.
