The mushroom folk are beautifully illustrated here in this classic book by Signe Aspelin. Each family has its own characteristics and we get to know them well in these charming little tales. Meet the golden Coral Mushrooms, the bumpy Brain Mushrooms, the pale Parasol Mushrooms, the fat Puffballs, the stinky Stinkhorns and the regal Button Mushrooms.
This handsomely illustrated book introduces readers to several types of mushrooms in imaginative fashion, presenting each of them as part of a mushroom family of children and parents. Thus, readers learn about the typical locations of these mushrooms but also watch them go about their days.
Illustrated in a classic style reminiscent of Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers, this is a lovely picture book filled with natural detail of the woods and meadows where the mushroom folk live.
