Publisher's Description

They're about three times bigger than their real-life equivalents, but these dramatic renderings of butterflies are scrupulously accurate—and they really fly! Just press out along the perforations, follow simple folding instructions, add a coin for weight, and send them soaring. All of them feature captions that include their Latin names and information about their habitats and behaviors plus pointers on where to look for them.
In addition to the fun of making and flying the beautiful insects, this book offers a great way to learn how to identify butterflies. Richard Merrill, a former aerospace design engineer, has created vivid and recognizable depictions of these majestic creatures' wing patterns. The twenty-four models include American Copper, Australian Red Lacewing, Blue Morpho, Painted Lady, and others. Nature lovers of all ages will appreciate this opportunity to understand and get to know butterflies—as well as the chance to play with them!
