The team behind Have You Heard the Nesting Bird? returns to explore the way flowers seem to “call” to certain pollinator species in order to propagate. Gray’s rhymes use poetic red herrings of a sort to engage readers: “Flowers are calling a desert deer./ No, not a deer! He can’t even get near./ They’re calling a nectar bat to flap over here.” Pak’s digitally altered watercolors capture a wide range of flora and fauna, from delicate Queen Anne’s lace to pale moonflowers that attract moths by night. It’s a sophisticated blend of scientific information and artistry. Ages 4–8. Author’s agent: Fiona Kenshole, Transatlantic Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Kirsten Hall, Catbird Productions.
