In the world of plants, time passes more slowly, but if we speed months into minutes we can peer into this hidden world and realise: it's a battleground. Plants are working to thwart their enemies, and to trick animals into working for them.
Right under your feet, and all around you, is a secret world you've probably never noticed. Until now. Let's explore our Green Planet: a secret world of plants that might change how you see plants forever . . .
Discover all there is to love about our astonishing Green Planet, the stories of its inhabitants, and the challenges it faces.
In collaboration with BBC Earth, this illustrated non-fiction book is perfect for families, as it captures the intrigue, drama, and beauty of the groundbreaking new BBC TV series: The Green Planet, presented by David Attenborough.

- Improvements we're working on in this product: Printing in Europe saves between 60% and 90% of a book's transport carbon - 60% if you print in Eastern Europe, 90% if you print in Ireland or UK. So, we wish this book were printed in Europe.
