What can smell like bubble gum, glow neon green at night, be poisonous and yet still be eaten by humans, and even help create rain? The answer is mushrooms! In this amazingly written and illustrated book Mushroom Rain, we find that from their hidden networks underground to the fruiting body above, mushrooms can do incredible things. But don't call them plants--mushrooms are fungi. They're more closely related to animals like you!

Through lyrical text and colorful, detailed artwork, the wonderful, mysterious, and sometimes bizarre world of mushrooms is explored. Back matter includes a glossary, additional mushroom facts, and a science activity.
