Award-winning science writer Darcy Pattison presents a superbloom from the desert's point-of-view.

When a sudden downpour, a monsoon, falls in the desert, plants and animals explode with growth. Plants sprout, bloom, produce seeds and die within a couple days. Likewise, in a week, animals hatch, grow, mate, lay eggs, and return to hibernation or estivation.

Strong lyrical text takes on the persona of the desert as it watches seeds it has cradled become flowering plants.

"...I'm flooded with redbluegreenyelloworangepurple

and buzzing with life-

gorgeous, outrageous,

frail LIFE "

The natural life cycles of the desert depend on rain. Explore this fascinating environment during one of its most spectacular displays of life.
