A Butterfly Without Wings is a darling book by David M.F. Powers. It's a story about a little caterpillar who decides to go after what he wants and comes up with a plan that involves convincing others he is something other than what he is, a caterpillar. He takes a risk and in the end it pays off for him and he does get to eat the tasty leaf he wanted. I did keep expecting it to take a bit of a Gingerbread boy turn, but it didn't and the main character ends up with his happy ending.
My son enjoys having this book read to him and gets excited whenever the caterpillar meets another creature who wants to eat him and manages to escape as a butterfly without wings, which seems to baffle all the characters who want to eat him.
The artwork is wonderfully drawn by Natalia Nesterova and will be sure to delight any child reading this book.
