Product Details


Crisp, bright photographs and a simple, personal narrative create a remarkably informative look at the process of silk production in a Thai village.
—Kirkus Reviews

Readers will be surprised and entranced by the origins of this ubiquitous fabric.
—Publishers Weekly

The book is attractively designed, open and uncluttered, with a fine balance of text and color photos.

Silk boasts an attractive format, a clearly written text, and excellent photography, and it offers a fascinating glimpse of the Thai people and their unique industry. It will also serve as a fine companion volume to The Life of Rice.
—School Library Journal

Who knew a book about worm spit could be so interesting!
—The Horn Book
