Description
Little ones will hover over this colorful look at insect critters as they peek through die-cuts and enjoy a final pop-up surprise.
Lucy sees a beautiful butterfly in the garden, along with a bright green beetle, a brilliant blue dragonfly, some red ladybugs, and many more flying and crawling things. But when will the radiant butterfly appear again? Petr Horacek uses his trademark saturated hues and simple shapes to create an enticing view of the world of colors -- and a peekaboo look at the slow-paced life abuzz in the backyard garden.
