Summary, etc.:
"Fungi seem mysterious--they're not animals and they're not plants. Some aren't even visible to the human eye. Yet, they're constantly at work breaking down dead organisms. Our world would be cluttered without them! This beneficial book sheds much-needed light on the fungi kingdom, explaining what a fungus is as well as some the weirdest adaptations that have made it a successful survivor in the natural world. Graphic organizers summarize essential points, while vivid photographs display how bright and beautiful these organisms can be."-- Provided by publisher.
