Meet someone new... Harriet, who sees Mars and tastes pomengranates -- all in one day; Cluny, a girl who wants to publish a magazine for people with weird names; Ky, who lives in a geodesic dome deep in the country; Fletcher, the survivor of an almost fatal illness, who decides to paste the names of exotic places he would like to visit on his chest and stomach; Edward George, who made a discovery and became famous -- famous and forgotten -- on a hot day in 1867.

You'll get to know them all in Some of the Kinder Plants -- nine stories full of humor, surprise, fear and wonder, peopled by characters who are just like you, and yet very, very different.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some of the Kinder Planets This book is my personal fav. Rich characters dealing with the little magic found in all of our lives. Excellent for prompting discussion on friendships, appearances -- all that stuff teachers have to deal with in health class. For those of you who live in the Ottawa area, Wynne-Jones bases many of his stories in your backyard.
