Still, even if I did not do that and know Hazel, I would recommend this book to anyone with a beginner or intermediate knowledge and interest in butterflies. The question and answer format works perfectly for teaching about them. Many of the questions are natural ones that occur to anyone who has thought at all about butterflies and the answers reveal the variety of butterfly characteristics and habits. A serious lepidopterist probably knows everything between the covers of this book, but for the rest of us it is a wonderful and easily read learning experience. I think it would be especially good for parents who want to teach and learn together with their children about butterflies.
And no, butterflies do not bite. They can't because they don't have mouths.
I purchased 10 books, one for my collection, and the others to give as gifts to my friends who I know would cherish them for years to come.
