Finding a beautiful butterfly in her garden leads Lucy onto a thrilling exploration of all the wonderful creatures in her garden and the many colours they come in. There’s a pink worm, a busy brown spider, a snail with an orange shell, a green beetle and a stripy bee and finally, as a gorgeous pop-up, the butterfly reappears in all the wonderful colours of the rainbow. This title offers an explosion of bright, bold colour, ideal for teaching young children about basic colours and minibeasts. It features a glorious glittery cover! Other titles by Petr Horacek include Silly Suzy Goose, A New House for Mouse and When the Moon Smiled.
