Agnes And Her Amazing Orchid
by Linda Locke and James Wolf
Illustrated by Muhammad Noh Arjuna
In the 1800s, a girl named Agnes Joaquim was passionate about plants. She learned to grow cool-weather European vegetables in the heat of Singapore. As she grew up, she collected many prizes for her plants. One day, after many trials and difficulty, she created a brand-new orchid. She showed it to an orchid expert named Henry Ridley, who officially named the flower the Vanda Miss Joaquim. This is the story of how one woman's ingenuity and determination created a flower that became world-famous—and Singapore's National Flower in 1981.
