Reviews

Moth [...] is another picture book with inbuilt growing room, an introduction to the concept of evolution in language both scientific and poetic, full of thrill and peril. [...] Thomas's spare text and back matter elegantly develop the book's twin themes of survival and hope." -- Times Literary Supplement * Times Literary Supplement *
Moth [...] is a stunning visual experience. The narrative is simple - the life and evolution of the Peppered Moth. It is not a fictional story but it shows that facts can also inspire the imagination. This is how information can really excite. Magical. -- Ferelith Hordon * Books for Keeps *
A gorgeous blend of text and illustrations and a wonderfully successful introduction to nonfiction for younger readers -- Maggie Reagan * Booklist *
