Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lays to rest certain fears (for example, poinsettias are not the killers they are reputed to be). The photographs are good and helpful for identifying the plants. . . . If you or a family member or friend does get poisoned by a plant, hope the doctors have a copy of this book on their shelves."

Format: Paperback
If you live in Hawaii and have one or more young children, put this book on your shelf. If you garden in Hawaii, you'll find this an intriguing and informative book. Even if you don't fit either of those descriptions, this is a marvelous book to have, beautifully done, lucid text, remarkable photos.
