All About New Zealand Plants introduces the best-known trees, climbers, shrubs, flowers and other plants to young children. Alongside illustrations of plants, fruits, flowers and other details, artist/writer Dave Gunson’s lively text gives the botanical facts and fascinating nuggets. Kowhai, for instance, was used to treat sore throats, and rangiora has long served as emergency toilet paper! Each tree is accompanied by a profile illustration showing its height relative to humans.


This is the third title in New Holland’s new ‘All About…’ natural history series from top illustrator Dave Gunson, which kicked off in October ’08 with All About New Zealand Birds, and was followed in January ’09 by All About New Zealand Insects and other Creepy-Crawlies. Though published for children, Dave Gunson’s true-to-life pictures and engaging text will interest any reader from 6 years to 60.
