Gloria D. Gonsalves has written two short, charming books that are a good introduction for very young children to the world of mushrooms. Lamellia: The Kingdom of Mushrooms describes the inhabitants of Lamellia. Many Americans fear wild mushrooms, so the friendliness of those in this book may serve to interest youngsters in searching out wild mushrooms for themselves, and learning about nature by experience. The second book, Lamellia: The Wicked Queen, is a rewrite and extension of the first...has only 6 illustrations, equally charming, and the 21 pages of text have more content.
