CACTUS HOTEL by Brenda Z. Guiberson


by Brenda Z. Guiberson & illustrated by Megan Lloyd

Pub Date: May 1st, 1991
ISBN: 0-8050-1333-4
Publisher: Henry Holt

On the same level and covering the same ground as Bash's Desert Giant: The World of the Saguaro Cactus (1989), another clear, well-illustrated look at this pivotal contributor to the ecology of the Southwest. Bash's volume is a bit handsomer and includes the uses of the saguaro by Native Americans; but Lloyd's attractive illustrations are more finely detailed. A good second resource. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 5+)
