Root, Phyllis.(2010). Big belching bog. (Illustrations by Betsy Bowen). Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press. PRIM-FIC R7824bi

The cold, wet bog seems unwelcoming, but it’s home to special, secret inhabitants like plants that eat insects and frogs that stay frozen through the winter. The biggest secret is that under the surface, under the tree roots, deep in the peat, something is growing, rising, coming closer, lifting the moss into a bubble and then breaking through to the surface. Does the bog belch? No one has ever heard it, but you might be the first.
