"Optically striking...A book to closely pore over." Kirkus Review
"Impressively informative, exceptionally well organized, memorably presented, and thoroughly engaging from beginning to end." Midwest Book Review

"This lively blend of imagination and science might send children scrambling to their backyards or neighborhood parks to see what else they can spot in flowers." Booklist
