About the Book

From Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins comes a series of animals with unusual eyes in this eye-catching picture book!

In his eye-popping work of picture book nonfiction, Jenkins explains how for most animals, eyes are the most important source of information about the world in a biological sense.

The simplest eyes—clusters of light-sensitive cells—appeared more than one billion years ago, and provided a big survival advantage to the first creatures that had them. Since then, animals have evolved an amazing variety of eyes, along with often surprising ways to use them.

Critical Praise

"The evolution of the eye and the surprising ways animals see the world are displayed in a thoughtfully designed and engagingly illustrated album." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"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)

"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)

"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

"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
