Did you know that butterflies taste with their feet, do a dark red poo when they come out of their chrysalises, and that some drink the tears of crocodiles? How does the world look to them, do they ever sleep, and how are some of them able to fly so high? This book, covering all sorts of international butterflies, will open your eyes to these magical creatures around us.
The Wellington illustrator, Giselle Clarkson, whom many of you may know from her comics on The Sapling, has illustrated a book! Written by the Auckland poet, writer, and playwright, Courtney Sina Meredith, these two brilliant New Zealand creatives have combined their skills together to make a great book.
The reader is taken through a colourful journey of the world of butterflies. With simple writing and quirky situations such as butterflies drinking crocodile tears, or soaring as high as planes, this is the perfect NZ picture book for 3-7 year olds.
