Friends of the Flowers: A Curious Tale of Priceless Pollinators

This is the fifth book in the Tales of Curious Critters series for early readers. It continues the adventures of Boone and Rosa. This time not only does Boone’s brother, Gus, but their friend, Gina, joins them as their curiosity leads them to the garden of their neighbor, Mr. Bloom.

Mr. Bloom offers these four friends an opportunity to become junior gardeners - a chance for them to learn about flowers and pollination, and in the process to make a real contribution to nature and to the future.

As with all other stories in the series, Friends of the Flowers is full of scientific facts and offers real ways kids can make a difference.

After a career as a teacher, counselor, school principal, and leadership coach, Ken is now writing and illustrating children’s books. He lives with his wife in Portland, Oregon where (even though he is allergic to bees) they tend a garden of flowers to attract bees, butterflies, beetles, and humming birds.
