Since then, animals have evolved an amazing variety of eyes, along with often surprising ways to use them.

Editorial 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 "
