The Butterfly Dance

Written by Suzanne Barton

Illustrated by Suzanne Barton

The Butterfly Dance Synopsis

Caterpillars Dotty and Stripe do everything together. They play, they eat leaves and do all sorts of caterpillar-y things, and then one day, after spinning themselves into snuggly cocoons, they wake up as beautiful butterflies! But soon they realise that, for the first time ever, they look different. Should Dotty only play with butterflies that look like her? And Stripe only play with butterflies that look like him? A stunningly illustrated story about friendship and and being happy with who you are, from the author/illustrator of Waterstones Children's Book Prize shortlisted The Dawn Chorus.
