Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is another hot day in the desert. Birds and other animals scurry about looking for food. When they get tired they stop to rest at a giant cactus. It is their hotel in the desert!

Many different animals live in the cactus hotel. It protects them; and they protect it, by eating the pests that could harm the cactus.

The cactus grows larger and larger and will live for about two hundred years. When one animal moves out, another moves in. There is never a vacancy in the cactus hotel.

This story--about a desert, a giant cactus, and the animals who live in it--is one that even the youngest child will understand and enjoy.

Synopsis:

It is another hot day in the desert. Birds and other animals scurry about looking for food.When they get tired they stop to rest at a giant cactus. It is their hotel in the desert!

Brenda Z. Guiberson's Cactus Hotel is already a favorite in many homes and classrooms, with sales totaling more than 320,000 in hardcover and paperback. The big book format allows Megan Lloyd's detailed illustrations to shine and makes sharing in wonder of the desert life cycle more fun than ever.

"A fascinating look at the life cycle of the giant saguaro cactus and its

place in the desert ecosystem." --Booklist

Synopsis:

In words and pictures fascinating to even the youngest child, the desert world is brought to life in this poetic story about the life--and death--of a giant saguaro cactus. Full color throughout.

About the Author

Brenda Z. Guiberson thinks there is no reason a book can't have a cactus as the main character. "If four and five-year-old children are interested in natural science," she says, "why channel them in a different direction?" Anyone who reads Cactus Hotel is sure to agree.

Ms. Guiberson is the author of several books for children. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

Megan Lloyd read the manuscript for Cactus Hotel and went to the Saguaro National Monument in Arizona herself. "I like to see what I am going to illustrate rather than make it up," she says.

Ms. Lloyd is the illustrator of many picture books. She lives in Pennsylvania.
