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.
