Amy Stewart's book is beautifully presented. Etchings, drawings and calligraphy give the appearance of an ancient herbal with a hint of Harry-Potter spell book... The writing style is very readable, light and entertaining. It's a fun, informative book about what Stewart calls the 'unfathomable evils' of the plant kingdom and the presentation makes it an enticing read. --Eden Magazine
