#ad GIVEAWAY and Review: A Butterfly Without Wings Book



My Thoughts

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.



Book Description from Pants on Fire Publishing

When a caterpillar spots a green leaf waving from the top of a tree, he doesn't think twice about the dangers lurking about. Instead, he comes up with a plan and doggedly inches his way towards the leaf.

A Butterfly Without Wings is the charming story of a hungry, self-confident, and determined caterpillar that refuses to let obstacles stop him from reaching for his goal. The caterpillar proves that if you believe in yourself and set your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. With snappy dialogue, humor, and perfect pacing, award-winning author David M. F. Powers captures the spirit of determination and self-confidence.

Powers' spirited text is perfectly paired with artist Natalia's colorful and very lively artwork. Parents and their children will love reading and re-reading this celebration of confidence.
