You re keeping "soooo" still. You re trying not to even "breathe" too loudly. You don t want to disturb the most wonderful, delicate-looking creature you ve ever seen. Insect expert Darlyne Murawski leads young readers inside the fascinating world of butterflies: learn how they are magically transformed from squirmy caterpillars; discover how each species develops unique wings; and witness a butterfly food fight, as they wrestle over a flower until a winner is declared." Darlyne A. Murawski has photographed butterflies all over the world, from Costa Rica to India. She is the author and photographer of a number of National Geographic magazine articles on topics ranging from butterflies and other insects to fungi, parasites, and spider webs. Darlyne has been honoured with the Award of Excellence from Communications Arts and by the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award Committee for her nature photography. She holds a doctoral degree in biology from the University of Texas and a master's degree in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has written other award-winning books for children, including Face to Face with Caterpillars, Spiders and their Webs, and Bug Faces, which won a Children's Literature Choice Award.
