Reviews

* "The evolution of the eye and the surprising ways animals see the world are displayed in a thoughtfully designed and engagingly illustrated album."
--Kirkus, starred review

"The eyes themselves [are] prominently featured in well-designed layouts that serve both as study guide and display for the beautifully rendered and reproduced cut-paper artwork"
--Horn Book Magazine

* "Large, colorful pictures of more than 20 animal eyes are accompanied by a small illustration of the entire creature and a brief paragraph of intriguing information ...Animal facts, a bibliography, and a glossary round out this slim volume that will captivate readers of all ages."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"This attractive, large-format volume introduces eyes in the animal kingdom...Browsers will enjoy the illustrations, while teachers might find this a useful visual resource."
--Booklist

"The framing of eye anatomy, especially the concluding chart explaining the evolution of the eye, gives the information a broader context that gives the book impact beyond Jenkins' famously vivid cut-paper illustrations."
--Bulletin
* "The eye, with its intricate structure and symbolic resonance, is an ideal focus for Jenkins' inquisitive, informative narrative and multidimensional art."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review
