We can't guarantee all of the flora and fauna itemized in this illustrated field guide can be found in your neighborhood, but you'll probably spy more than a few once you know what to look for! Zoologist and illustrator Marni Fylling identifies dozens of plants and animals commonly found throughout the United States, offering brief yet illuminating information about their habitats, distinguishing features, and most fascinating traits. For example: Urushiol, the itch-producing allergen in poison oak, poison ivy, and poison sumac, is also found in pistachios, mangos, and cashews; opossums are the only marsupial native to the United States, and they're immune to snake venom; the mythological concept of "Cupid's arrow" may have been inspired by mating garden snails. Go outside and explore! (KG)
