Mushroom Fan ClubMushroom Fan Club HC – Drawn and Quarterly takes readers on a whimsical tour of the forest floor.
A favorite pastime of Elise Gravel’s family is mushroom hunting. Gravel takes readers with her out into nature to discover these alien-looking denizens of the forest floor. With her talent for anthropomorphizing everything, specimens such as the fun-to-stomp puffballs to the prince of stinkers—the stinkhorn mushroom—take on a new life. Her knowledge of this fascinating kingdom will bring each species to life and light the flame of curiosity in young readers. It’s a great addition to any graphic and non-fiction collection.

It even defines key terms, explains how the game is played, and breaks down the cultural impact and significance of the sport here and overseas.
