There was once a caterpillar who lived all alone. Everything around Caterpillar seemed large and strange and she was full of fear.
Caterpillar lives alone in her leaf and turns down exciting experiences. One day she wants to hide away so she forms a chrysalis. When she finally comes out she is a beautiful butterfly and she tries lots of exciting things with her friends and spreads her story among other butterflies.
A great picture book by Ambelin Kwaymullina, good for small children aged 1-8.
