Garden allies : the insects, birds & other animals that keep your garden beautiful and thriving / Fr©♭d©♭rique Lavoipierre ; illustrations by Craig Latker.


"The birds, mammals, reptiles, and insects that inhabit our yards and gardens are overwhelmingly on our side--they are not our enemies, but instead our allies. They pollinate our flowers and vegetable crops, and they keep pests in check. In Garden Allies, Fřďrique Lavoipierre shares fascinating portraits of these creatures, describing their life cycles and showing how they keep the garden's ecology in balance. Also included is helpful information on how to nurture and welcome these valuable creatures into your garden."
