From the Publisher
The mazes of the cave reach back, from bright to darkest dark. Step through the sunny entrance and what treasures you'll find -- colonies of bats sheltered in the dim light, deep chambers decorated with soaring columns of crystallized rock, and secret worlds where pale, blind creatures live by hearing, touch, and smell. All these and more await the reader of this stunning collaboration, in which Diane Siebert's evocative text and Wayne McLoughlin's luminous paintings capture a fascinating wonderland world.
"...vocabulary is at once challenging and understandable in context...breathtaking paintings further reveal the intricate mysteries of this dark world..."
-- School Library Journal
"...There’s more to be gained than facts in this book: in beautiful images, sounds, and rhythms...a fascinating secret world..."
