Synopsis

First Flight by Sara Fanelli

First Flight is a young picture book by a prize-winning author-illustrator. Butterfly bursts out of her chrysalis and immediately wants to get closer to the blue sky above but she has no idea how to launch herself. After repeated tumbles she appeals to flight experts all over the world for help. Her search goes to Italy, France, China, Scotland and Brazil; each time she tries out a new suggestion and each time she lands back on earth (sometimes with a painful bump). Eventually a familiar voice calls to her and as she appeals to her mother for help, Butterfly takes off without realising and her quest is at an end - How happy am I, at last I can fly!
