What if plants and trees could walk and talk and think and act? What if they're doing these things right now, when you're not looking?

Meet the angry Jak, the wise Banyan, the elegant Casuarina and the little Cactus, hear about their secret lives, and find out what they think about us!

Amusing, surprising, and thought-provoking, Those Sneaky Plants is a book for children of all ages. Inspired by ecology and questions about the future, it asks if humans should look after nature, or if nature should take care of us?

Written by Shehan Karunatilaka, illustrated by Ruwangi Amarasinghe, and designed by Fold Media Collective, it is a book filled with pretty flowers, friendly trees, and big ideas.

Shehan Karunatilaka has done questionable things to nature over the years. He hopes to spend the rest of his days planting seeds, growing crops, and lying under trees. He has writted books about cricket, ghosts and excrement. He is the father of a gardener and a lumberjack Ruwangi "Roo" Amarasinghe went to the beach once and decided never to leave. She draws pictures inspired by sci-fi, nature, and the cosmic universe. Since illustrating this book, she's noticed trees and plants staring suspiciously at her.
