The Revenge Of The Green Planet - The Eden Project Book Of Amazing Facts About Plants by Paul Spooner
A book of amazing facts to astound your friends, in a joke book format with witty black and white drawings. Read all about how many coffee beans Beethoven used to make one cup, what plants are dangerous to touch, and whether you eat grass for breakfast - you'll be amazed! Believe it or not: some plants grow at more than half a metre a day; others look like green lavatory bowls full of digesting fluid; one particular bush has been growing continuously for 40,000 years. Be warned - the green things are taking over the planet. They are already the dominant life form on Earth, making up 99 per cent of all living things, so you'd better start showing a bit of respect! This book contains hundreds of fascinating facts to keep you informed, impress you friends and amuse your family.
