In his eye-popping work of picture book nonfiction, the Caldecott Honor-winning author-illustrator Steve 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.

This book is amazing! I had no "Eye"dea that there were colours humans could not see, or that mantis shrimp have the best eyes in the animal kingdoms! Recommend for everyone!

Do you know what animal has eyeballs the size of a basketball? Find out in this book! It's got many weird and cool eye facts, plus amazing collage illustrations.
