Why is that tree lumpy? How do insects stay alive in the winter? What are tides, anyway?

I thought this book was ok because at some parts it was kind of boring like when they talked about maple sap and fireflies. I thought it was boring at those parts because I already knew a lot about them. I liked the part about lichens because I learned knew things like that lichen is actually two organisms together, an alga and a fungus. I also learned that lichen create soil!!! I reccomend this book to people who like learning things about the wilderness.
