Butterflies Up Close
Each book focuses on a particular insect and includes information about several different types of that insect. Each book looks at the anatomy, features, and behavior of the minibeast, introducing information about habitats, reproduction, predators, and feeding along the way. Images are highly magnified and contoured to give the impression that the creatures are almost walking off the page.
