9780152004705: I Wish I Were a Butterfly

Amid the tinted foliage and tangled undergrowth of a waning season, day breaks on Swampswallow Pond. But while most of the crickets fiddle happily at their music and passersby go about their business, the littlest cricket struggles with a mighty problem. Forced to question his identity, he seeks counsel and reassurance from a very special friend.

Wisdom blows softly as dandelion seed through this miniature world brilliantly magnified with delicate words and shimmering strokes. James Howe and Ed Young work together in perfect harmony to create a story with a spirit as refreshing as childhood itself.
