The Girl Who Drew Butterflies: How Maria Merian’s Art Changed Science has already received five starred reviews.

Maria Merian, born in 1647, was one of the first to document butterfly metamorphosis, using her scientific mind and superb artistic skill. Her life was full of risk, adventure, and discovery. I absolutely loved researching, writing, and finding 80+ illustrations for this colorful middle grade biography.
