Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

Plants (1997) Post 172

Plants is one of a set of non fiction titles for young readers, illustrated with photographs. The text goes through a definition, then moves to trees, mosses, ferns, cacti, grasses, fungi, clover and wild flowers. Twenty years after writing this book, I can't remember why I included clover, since it doesn't seem to go with the rest. I also can't remember why I didn't include eatable plants such as vegetables. Maybe the brief was for a particular set of plants and indeed, it's probable there was another one in the series that did cover vegetables, and another for flowers.

About the Blog 

Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service, leave me a message.
