Synopsis

Weird Butterflies & Moths by Ronald Orenstein, Thomas Marent

There are more than 200,000 species of butterflies and moths. Many, in fact, are still uncategorized. This fascinating book reveals a rare and close up look at the odd beauty and behaviour of some of the strangest of these tiny creatures. Despite their large numbers, the world of these particularly weird insects exists largely hidden from our view. Included in the book are some of the most interesting species from North and South America, Europe, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand and beyond. Readers will be introduced into the world of the butterfly with images demonstrating how these paper-thin winged miracles of nature adapt and survive against all odds, which include predators, weather and humanity's wilful destruction of habitat.

Reviews

The photographs take center stage, as both double-- and single-page spreads are accompanied, quite simply, by the English and scientific name of each insect and a short paragraph discussing form and habitat... Examples of moths and butterflies in their caterpillar and metamorphosis stages are readily available as well, while an introduction provides additional background information, as well as some resources for further study.--Maggie Reagan Booklist (12/01/2016)

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
