What Does Bookroo Think of Leafy Critters

Leaves, branches, and seeds are made into remarkable animals that will inspire creativity.

In this wordless book, acclaimed artist and photographer Lacet merges art, creativity, and nature to delight readers with a series of animals made from natural materials like leaves and seeds. The complexity and color of the animals vary greatly—on the minimal end, there is a bright flamingo created from just three leaves and a small branch, while on the more complex side, there is an enchanting peacock created with an assortment of over one hundred colorful petals. While most creations are shot on a white background, a stunning polar bear in a swirling arctic snowstorm is created using small white petals arranged on a black background. On several pages, Lacet includes a shot of the materials, laid out in columns and rows, used for the animal, which gives readers helpful insight into the creative process of how simple found objects can be combined to create delightful displays, and the varying levels of complexity make the projects intriguing and inspiring for all skill levels. Any reader who has ever gathered flower petals or leaves to make pictures will be flooded with fun memories, and for those who haven’t and are eager to give it a try, Lacet’s simple directions in the back will help them get started.
