Then one day when the wind is up, her parents warn her it's too windy to go flying. But Cleopatra can't resist doing her cherry dip flip one last time! The gusty wind sweeps her over the hills and SPLAT! into a gooey swamp. Will the feisty little butterfly be able to fly her way back home to safety?
