Reviews & Summaries
This is another example of Jan Brett's wonderful artistic style. The story/plot is a little lackluster and even has a few points that fall apart under close scrutiny. But the illustrations! Oh so wonderful. Each spread has another aspect of nature - moths, butterflies, gems & minerals, etc. They're very much in the style of "cabinet of curiosities," similar to how museums were organized in that era. My favorites are the wildflowers and orchids. Seriously, I could spend an entire hour drinking them in.
