KIRKUS REVIEW

As in her ""Just for a Day"" books, Ryder's poetic text here suggests that readers take the animal's point of view as she describes its experiences--in this case, a black swallowtail as it develops from egg to butterfly. The focus is on the sensory; fuller, more scientific information appears on a final page. Cherry's precise, delicate, colorful illustrations are the boos outstanding feature, giving the habitat the charm of a close-up view of familiar territory--a lush bed of wildflowers (which fail to change as the season advances), and many other small creatures. An attractive nature book.
