Butterflies Fly

Yvonne Winer, Author, Karen Lloyd-Jones, Illustrator Charlesbridge Publishing $16.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-57091-446-1
Aspiring lepidopterists can learn how, when, where and why butterflies take flight in flowery prose (""Butterflies paint/ A palette so bright:/ A gift to the world,/ A symphonic flight./ That's why butterflies fly"") on the pages of Butterflies Fly by Yvonne Winer, illus. by Karen Lloyd-Jones. What the text lacks in specificity the illustrations more than compensate for: from the well-known Monarch butterfly to the Indian Leaf that hails from Southern East Asia, each delicate pair of wings is pictured in its habitat. These glorious paintings and a closing identification guide will lead readers off to the closest butterfly exhibit. ( Feb.)
