KIRKUS REVIEW

 An exceptional, simple science lesson from Hariton (Egg Story, not reviewed) that goes down as easy as lemonade on a summer afternoon. From tiny eggs to lovely full-grown red admiral, readers track the progress of a butterfly. The text is never sensational, never strays too far from the miraculous journey it limns, all the white spinning an understanding of and appreciation for the mystery behind metamorphosis. Hariton's watercolor accompaniments are fine of line, as lambent as butterfly wings, as engrossing as the story. (Picture book. 5-7)
