    1. Wonderful introduction to the fascinating world of orchids. The last page has actual photos and facts of the illustrated pictures.


    2. The poem part is so-so. But the illustrations based on real flowers (photos of which are at the end of the book) are great! I can totally see what she is seeing. Great way to open up imagination, and to enjoy flowers (which I always do). Not earth-shattering in subject or information or format. Not sure how well this will do in the Beehive running. But I enjoyed it.


    3. Peachtree Publishers sent me an F&G of Fantastic Flowers and Miss Muffet and I pored over it at the dining room table. The book is all about flowers that resemble people, animals, and objects, and like Spectacular Spots, which we also love, it has smooth rhyming text and bold, colorful, and very eye catching illustrations. There is also some great back matter that shows what the flowers look like in real life and gives all their names. The author is local to us, and I believe she will be at [...]


    4. Have you played the game where you look at the clouds and decide what they look like? Stockdale has turned the cloud game upon flowers - what do these flowers look like to you? Baboons, ballerinas or babies?!


    5. This book has some lovely images and what is even more special is that these are all flowers that can be found in the natural world. I have been lucky enough to see the Bee Orchid in the wild and now have a lot of other ones to add to my list. Shows the beauty of the natural world.


    6. I'm really torn about this bookI love the idea, using your imagination to see different shapes in different flowers. What I'm not quite sold on are the illustrations. It was hard for me to look at the pictures and see what they were describing, the pictures seemed a little tooabstract? That could just be me, but I wish they had used actual pictures of flowers instead.


    7. after the story, photographs are included of the flowers Illustrated along with their common and scientific name, native location, and pollinators. Children will have fun spotting the pollinators in the illustrations as they read the book a second time.


    8. Although these are beautiful illustrations, there were several of which I fail to see the described images - until I look at the photographs.Simple phrases in large black, easy-to-read font under the frame of each flower, one per page.


    9. King of like cloud watching but with flowers. Illustrations of flowers can be seen as other objects or animals.




    10. Nice, simple text with beautiful illustrations of flowers. I enjoyed the photographs and short facts at the back of the book.




    11. Flowers that look like ballerinas? Baboons? A swaddled baby? Strangely enough it's all true and Susan Stockdale highlights seventeen flowers that look an awful lot like something else. It reminds me a bit of the cloud game, where you try to see things in the clouds, except with flowers. This is a great book to use to introduce children to plants and the amazing variety and the strange characteristics of flowers. In addition, Stockdale also gives a brief overview of pollination. Photographs are i [...]



    12. The illustrations in this book are drawings of real life flowers, but they also look like other things. The author/illustrator has asked children to imagine the flowers as a parrot in flight, purses with flaps, fluttering bats, etc. They're almost like optical illusions. The text is simple, and the colors in the drawings are vivid. It's almost laid out like a board book. The ARC was incomplete, so I couldn't get the full feel of the book, but I would guess it will appeal to children between ages [...]



    13. Nice simple test for a read-aloud. Colorful illustrations of flowers. Back text with pictures of the flowers and some information about them.
