What grain has seeds in all colors of the rainbow, can grow twenty feet high, is often harvested by moonlight, and is more valuable to the United States than gold?

As the New York times Book Review said, "Micucci knows how to grab his audience" and is "canny about organizing his material." Building upon his successful series of creative science for the younger grades, the author-illustrator of the LIFE AND TIMES series focuses on the science, uses and history of American's most prevalent crop. A master of fascinating trivia, he knows just how to draw readers in and expand on a seemingly small topic.
