Product description


★ "Labeled art that is both stylized and anatomically correct―and that even has a somewhat humorous appeal―complements the conversational text. Excellent organization of material includes ample introduction to Linnaean classification in both text and glossary (under “order (scientific)”), allowing for easy browsing....Kudos for explaining monarch and painted lady butterflies’ generational migrations as akin to a relay race. Fun, inspiring, and well researched."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
