Synopsis: Like magic, the stunning close-up photographs in this book reveal, in the delicate wings of butterflies and moths from around the world, an exquisite alphabet written in nature's own hand. Playful, fanciful verse serves as a guide through this celebration of the wondrously colorful world of butterflies and the secret delights of the natural world that beckon us all.

Review: "One day many years ago, as I was looking through a microscope at a tropical moth, to my surprise I noticed a tiny, perfect letter F hidden on the wing. I was astounded and wondered if I could find other letters. Perhaps I could even find the entire alphabet in the wings of butterflies and moths! I decided that I was going to be the first to try."

So wrote Kjell B. Sandved in his introduction to The Butterfly Alphabet. Little did he know that it would take him more than 25 years, with visits to more than 30 countries, to discover and photograph all the letters of the alphabet in butterfly wings. This glorious book is the fruit of his labors. On each spread, you'll find a picture of the whole butterfly or moth and its common name, with a full-page, full-color close-up on the adjacent page of the letter on the creature's tiny wing scales. A gentle poem accompanies the flight from A to Z as well: "On wings aloft across the skies-- / An alphabet of butterflies. / Each butterfly in secret brings / A letter hidden in its wings." A few butterfly basics and a glossary of the species featured in the book close this fascinating, loving, photographic ode to the order Lepidoptera. (Ages 4 to 104) --Karin Snelson
