About the Book

‘With its rich, vibrant colours and clear, thoughtful text, this picture book will appeal to the very young in particular, and yet, like many good books for children, the message it contains is universal … It is a beautifully written story, the use of alliteration and the careful choice of verbs adding depth and movement to the visual joy of each page.’ — Bookseller+Publisher

There was once a caterpillar who lived all alone. Everything around Caterpillar seemed large and strange, and she felt frightened of the world.

Trapped and lonely in a prison of her own making, Caterpillar is crippled by her fears. Unless she can find the strength to overcome them, she will never learn to truly live.

Caterpillar and Butterfly is by the author and illustrator of the critically acclaimed Crow and the Waterhole and The Two-hearted Numbat
