Description

A monarch butterfly's life cycle comes to life in this beautiful lift-the-flap book.

An egg, a feast, a transformation . . .
The fascinating life cycle of the monarch butterfly is illuminated in this special lift-the-flap book with illustrations from printmaker Laura Weston. Told in simple language with black-and-white illustrations, the book's many flaps reveal flashes of exquisite color. Watch the monarch butterfly’s metamorphosis from egg to caterpillar to butterfly, then go on an incredible journey as it migrates for winter.


About the Author

Laura Weston lives by a marine lake, where oyster catchers dabble and boats bob. She likes the ocean, but she really loves drawing and painting anything with wings, petals, leaves, feathers, or fur! This is her first picture book. When she's not making art, she likes to teach others all about it.
