Illustoria’s #18: Rainforest
In Illustoria #18: Rainforest, enter the lively world of the jungle to find mysterious creatures, peculiar plants, and a distinctive climate. Is the Bird of Paradise a bird, a bloom, or both? Our favorite poet tries to find out. Learn about rare and remarkable animals in our guest curator feature with Stewart Easton, and a host of new artists. Hop in the kitchen with Dog Chef for tips on whipping up a tropical smoothie, and follow Broccoli Guy as he searches the forest to find… a true wild yam. All this, and so much, just waiting to be discovered by adventurous young readers inside this gorgeous verdant issue, featuring stunning cover art by Laura Carlin.
