Sunday ebook assessment – The Painted Girl by Elvira Werkman and Maxime Beck – Mark Avery

It is a smallish ebook, Ladybird ebook in dimension, of 80 pages, over 20 of that are occupied by Maxime Beck’s engaging illustrations. The textual content, by Elvira Werkman, covers a number of floor very clearly in such a brief area. I learn a lot of the ebook, with pleasure, in a single sitting. There’s a helpful index.

The Painted Girl is a phenomenon – some years there are few seen within the UK however in others the numbers are very excessive. I bear in mind, however it was years in the past, seeing tens of hundreds of Painted Girls on thistles in a single discipline. And one other time, occurring to be at cover degree in a Northants woodland, seeing butterflies whizzing previous, at fairly a lick, all heading usually northwards – they had been Painted Girls.

This yr appears to have been fairly a superb yr within the UK, however not a kind of really distinctive years the place this butterfly appears to be in all places for a couple of weeks.  My buddleia within the backyard continues to be flowering and Painted Girls can be welcome to go to!

The Painted Girl is essentially the most widespread butterfly on the planet –  present in Europe/Asia and Africa and in North/Central America too. We now perceive that it’s a recurring migrant with the inhabitants about to go south for Africa now and that it’s going to return to northern Europe subsequent spring and summer time. However who returns? Not the identical people as they don’t stay that lengthy. A yr will see the species cowl practically 15,000km however that’s achieved in round 8-10 generations of butterflies. How stupendous! And the identical scale of migration, from Canada to Mexico is going down, by the identical species, in North America. Wow!

A person butterfly at the moment in northern Europe might cross the Alps, the Mediterranean after which the Sahara to provide the following technology within the Sahel if the rains have come on the proper time and with enough quantity.  Simply wow!

This ebook fills within the particulars of the Painted Girl’s life story and one thing of its place in human tradition. It’s a brief and gripping learn.

The duvet makes it fairly clear what the ebook is about and is relatively good. The illustrations by means of the ebook are of comparable high quality and improve the studying expertise. I’d give it 8/10.

The Painted Girl by Elvira Werkman and Maxime Beck is printed by Noordboek Natuur (however it’s listed, however not at the moment priced, on Amazon too).
