About the Book

Can the soul be compared to anything more beautiful than the butterfly?

    From a dull, groveling caterpillar to a soaring creature of splendor and grace, the butterfly has captivated our heart, inspired our spirit, and preoccupied our imagination since the dawn of history. The caterpillar crawls through the dark and dangerous forest searching for its food plant so that it may one day flutter under a brilliant sun, from flower to flower, in a new world of sky, color, and perfume. The Butterfly, then, is a fable about such a caterpillar. A brave little caterpillar who leaves the Silk Palace to find the last real butterfly.
