About the expert:
Raised in the countryside of lovely central Minnesota, Jessica Dumas had plenty of butterflies around and was amazed by them. When she grew up, she married and moved to the city, had three children and a career. Her love for butterflies dwindled. Several years later her mom died from breast cancer. She left her several butterfly-related personal items. Jessica's love for butterflies was rekindled and in remembrance of her, she became an advocate and lover of butterflies with the desire to write about them. She has written poems about butterflies but this is her first butterfly book. Jessica hopes you enjoy it!

- Monhegan Monarch
I have studied and reared Monarchs for many years. Bought this because it was a new title and thought I'd give it a try. If a romance novelist were to write a science book - this is what it would be like. yuck. The female stamps her feet on the host leave to identify it as milkweed? Where on earth did this come from? Identify the source, please. yuck.
