A palette so bright:
A gift to the world,
A symphonic flight.
Butterflies are fascinating. Their fragile Beauty, amazing metamorphosis, jewel-like colours, and joyful, meandering flight all spark our imagination. Yet the future of many species is threatened, as their habitats are destroyed by development and pollution.
This Poetic book features a variety of butterflies from around the world and makes a plea for their conservation. Yvonne Winer’s charming, whimsical verses provide details about each individual butterfly, and Karen Lloyd-Jones’ colourful, detailed illustrations bring these fascinating creatures to life with dazzling realism. A butterfly identification guide adds a further dimension with factual information about each butterfly.
