The fully grown swallowtail's brightly patterned wings lift up from the page as fluttery flaps, and more flaps reveal four other incredible caterpillar transformations.
As well as the butterfly life cycle, the book includes interesting butterfly facts, such as how they spread pollen, how they are similar and different to moths, and how they need places where there are lots of flowers for them to feed on.
Perfect for reading aloud, and with stage-by-stage pictures that tell the story, every page is easy to follow, and the combination of exciting photos and charming artwork will hold the interest of the very young.

From Nicola Davies, one of the UK’s finest non-fiction writers, and from Jane Ray, one of the UK’s finest illustrators, comes and exquisite Nature Storybook about … hummingbirds! A hummingbird is smaller than your thumb and weighs less than a 20 pence piece – however you measure it, it’s tiny.

This is the story of one spring migration: of a tiny bird, its amazing journey and the people it meets along the way.
