The study of the morphology of the Peppered Moth in England after the industrial revolution is a well known example of natural selection. Mary Anne Farah wrote it a children’s story. It is available as an e-book.
The publisher of Pepper’s Special Wings donated 5 copies of the e-book for National Moth Week participants. We still have two copies to give away to young moth’ers (10 yeast old or younger) who will tell us why they like moths. So why do you like moths and mothing? To send your answer – click here.

“I like to watch moths at night. My mom and me turn on the outside lights and then moths and other bugs come all around and we watch them out the window. Sometimes they try to come inside so we have to keep the door shut! I like that we have to stay up late to see them! The moth book looks cool. My baby sister thinks it looks cool too.”
Alisen, age 5:
“i like the moths that ‘involved’ (evolved) from white to black in England; they were smart moths. i like ‘involution’ (evolution). moths are like butterflies, but not as pretty.”
Caelyn, age 7:
“I love moths because the caterpillars make great friends. I love woolly bears.”
