Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Another alphabet book, yes but one that really serves as a way to present fascinating information and truly beautiful illustrations of butterflies. From the 20,000 species of these gorgeous insects, Cassie and Pallotta have selected those with interesting differences, such as the Indian Leaf Butterfly and its almost perfect camouflage or the Gulf Fritillary that only lays eggs on the leaves of a passionflower vine. Learn about the differences between butterflies and moths and what the wings look like close up.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2This colorful title opens with the high-flying Apollo butterfly and soars through the Zephyr Metalmark. Two or three sentences describe each species' unique characteristics and provide general information about the insects as well. Readers learn that the Transparent butterfly of the rainforest has see-through wings and that the Magdalena Alpine's ``black wings keep it warm'' by absorbing light. The stunning airbrushed illustrations are as bright, bold, and beautiful as the butterflies themselves. The dazzling creatures are shown in their native habitats and are painted to scale. There are, of course, many fine butterfly books, such as Dave Beaty's Moths and Butterflies (Child's World, 1993). However, this attractive new title will spark the interest of youngsters and send them off to do further research in the library and in the field.Amy Adler, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, OH
