Summary

Summary

Award-winning author Linda Glaser succeeds again in presenting an easy-to-read and enjoyable look at a small, valuable, and popular citizen of the natural world -- the monarch butterfly. As in Wonderful Worms, Spectacular Spiders, Beautiful Bats, and Fabulous Frogs, a delightfully simple lyrical text is enhanced by a picture book format.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-A companion to Glaser's Wonderful Worms (1992) and Spectacular Spiders (1998, both Millbrook), this title contains colorful, realistic illustrations that keep step with the simple, sometimes rhyming text. Three pages of more detailed data about monarchs and their complex lives, the addresses of butterfly societies, and a list of Web sites to explore are included. Despite the fact that mating is never mentioned (and egg laying is), and even if you own such fine titles as Gail Gibbons's Monarch Butterfly (Holiday, 1989), Deborah Heiligman's From Caterpillar to Butterfly (HarperCollins, 1996), and Kathryn Lasky's Monarchs (Harcourt, 1993), you might still want to make room for this pleasant addition.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
