Botanical artist and Instagram sensation Flora Forager makes her children's picture book debut with this imaginative alphabet book featuring real and imaginary animals created with natural materials gathered from her botanical foraging in wild places and from her garden.
BRIDGET BETH COLLINS, known as Flora Forager, is a nature lover, painter, writer, and botanical artist. She forages may of the natural materials for her creations from foliage and flowers plucked from the sidewalks, meadows, and woods of her neighborhood where she makes her home in the Pacific Northwest.
"The author cleverly exploits her materials' textures, shapes, and color gradations in compositions arranged against pastel backgrounds. The yak's petal-filled amber coat is appropriately shaggy, and the succulents used to create the elephant endow it with a rounded (albeit greenish) form"--Kirkus Reviews "Collins's compositions show delicate artistry and an eye for design;"--Publishers Weekly
