HomeJean Marzollo, author of I SPY

I wrote this book to teach beginning readers about caterpillars. It’s a good thing I did my research. Because when I started, I thought that butterflies made cocoons. Not true! A butterfly makes a chrysalis. A moth makes a cocoon. So, if you write about science, please always do your research. Collage artist Judith Moffatt made the beautiful pictures out of paper. My favorite picture is the one of the caterpillars eating a leaf. This is what I wrote for that page:

Munch. Crunch
Munch. Crunch.

That’s it.
No more food.
I’m done.
