Spicy and Burning Plants

From the Set Beware! Killer Plants

Plants might look harmless, but they can be killers. Some peppers are so spicy they can send a person to the hospital. Other plants can burst into flames or contain sap that burns the skin when exposed to light. This narrative nonfiction series features some of the most interesting--and hot--plants on the planet. Each book in this series includes a table of contents, glossary of key words, index, author biography, sidebars, and a feature on animal and plant mutualism.
