Offers a tongue-in-cheek solution to the problems of saying 'good-bye', through the use of plants and flowers which have certain poisonous properties. The advice is presented in the style of a woman's magazine with a 'handy hints' section on each page which suggests methods of serving. The book is printed throughout in shades of pink, with a petal shaped, die-cut cover.
