Congratulations to Gillian Richardson, whose book 10 Plants that Shook the World has won the de Bary Children’s Science Book Award for older readers.
The award is presented by The American Phytopathological Society, which is dedicated to high-quality, innovative plant pathology research.
The judges say,
This book discusses 10 economically or historically important plants in a chatty episodic format. It covers a lot of information in an edgy style (with edgy illustrations) that sarcastic children will enjoy, and mentions many important plant pathogens along the way.
