Description
(An ALA Notable Children's Book Selection and a Bank Street College of Education Best Books of the Year Selection) This introduction to the world of butterflies celebrates their beauty and their wonderful variety, from iridescent blue swallowtails to brilliant orange monarchs, from the tiny Arian Small Blue—no wider than your finger—to the enormous Queen Alexandra's Birdwing with its 12-inch wingspan. Lyrically written and gorgeously illustrated, this nature book for readers 5 to 9 is both informative and inspiring—Dianna Hutts Aston's thematic descriptions draw in younger listeners, while older readers are treated to numerous memorable facts about butterflies, all illustrated with Sylvia Long's superb naturalist watercolors. Dramatic images of migrating butterflies are joined by colorful arrays of various species, closeups of delicate wing scales, and the stages of metamorphoses from caterpillar to butterfly.

"This lovely combination of elegant watercolors and lyrical text is both eye-catching and informative."—School Library Journal (starred review)

"Similar butterfly albums abound, but none show these most decorative members of the insect clan to better advantage."—Kirkus Reviews
