THE SAMPLING: Secret World of Butterflies


We are very pleased to have permission to publish the first three spreads of the Giselle Clarkson-illustrated picture book, Secret World of Butterflies, written by Courtney Sina Meredith (Allen & Unwin NZ/Auckland Museum).

Butterflies are beautiful but they have some very odd habits - welcome to their secret world. Published to accompany the Auckland Museum exhibition Secret World of Butterflies (June 2018 to May 2019).

Butterflies can be big and butterflies can be teeny.

Fresh out of the chrysalis, butterflies are wet and wrinkly.

They bask in the sun to dry, then it's time to feed and fly.
