This aptly titled paperback delivers on its cover promise of "100 paper butterflies to glide, float, and pin," but it does even more. Besides its bright-winged paper creatures, Exquisite Butterfly Companion provides a veritable field guide to 100 species of butterfly and moth. A keepsake and a magical education. .
