Hike the American desert in the fourth book in Pomegranate’s Nature Discovery Book series. Charley Harper’s What’s in the Desert? explores a surprising abundance and variety of flora and fauna. Zoe Burke’s rhyming text introduces young readers to 35 different denizens of the desert—from the Gila Monster to the Gila Woodpecker, the Cactus Wren to Cactus flowers. All are depicted with colorful images taken from Harper’s painting The Desert, originally featured on a poster commissioned by the US National Park Service. The full painting is revealed at the end of the book on a fold-out page, complete with a key identifying each plant and creature.
