From one leopard ray in the open ocean to ten tundra butterflies in the Arctic sky, Carolyn Lesser’s playful language and Laura Regan’s glorious paintings celebrate the rich and varied wildlife of our earth. Each of the ten creatures presented lives in a different biome. A “More to Explore” section describes these biomes and includes information about their inhabitants.
Laura Regan's rich oil and gouache paintings make Carolyn Lesser's introduction to creatures with spots an aesthetic experience not to be missed. The species--from one leopard ray with "flapping, looping, cruising spots" to ten tundra butterflies with "sipping, flying, skying" ones--inhabit many biomes, all of which Ms. Lesser briefly describes.
