Deep within the tropical forests of the world live the most glittering, outrageously gorgeous butterflies on the planet. Every color of the rainbow decorates their graceful wings. From the rare Queen Alexandra-the largest butterfly in the world-to the postman-one of the most poisonous-to the owl butterfly-one of the insect world's masters of disguise, Dorothy Hinshaw Patent introduces readers to these unique and fascinating species. Kendahl Jan Jubb's intensely vibrant watercolor illustrations showcase these glorious creatures as they flit and flutter throughout the rain forests of the world.
