Book Review


Green Planet and its companion book, Blue Planet, are part of Moira Butterfield’s Colors of the World series. The book explains the anatomy and importance of trees, as they provide homes to more than half of the world’s plant and animal population. The introduction also gives examples of different types of extreme trees. Most of the book is dedicated to the wildlife found in Earth’s woods and forests. It covers a wide range of animals, from grizzly bears and pine martens to ground beetles and goliath bird-eating spiders. The last pages are dedicated to the many uses for wood, including treehouses that people use as homes of their own.
