I love butterflies. This book is so very beautiful. It is a perfect size for a small coffee table or end table. Each page has full size photos of butterflies and then on facing page it has the information of the butterfly. The price was so reasonable and the staff was wonderful at Smithsonian. Interlaken, NJ

I am a butterfly admirer so this book was purchased by me for my own enjoyment and to be displayed in my living room or craft room for others to enjoy as well. The pictures are vibrant and the information is wonderful. The book itself is well made with sturdy pages and very nice hardcover. Massachusetts

This book has beautiful photographs of adult butterflies. with descriptions, size, and range provided. It is chunky - the blurb said it would fit in a pocket, but it would need to be a large pocket! Good for just browsing, a bit weak on foodstuffs and caterpillar appearance for a field guide. For those of us who just love butterflies (down to my four-year-old granddaughter) it's gorgeous.
