Two caterpillars are great friends and they both dream of one day flying together in the sun. But nature has other ideas and one wakes up from its cocoon as a butterfly whilst the other wakes up as a moth. Instead of worshipping the sun, the second caterpillar flies by moonlight.
It has a lovely moral; that we cannot all be butterflies reaching for the sun. Some of us are born to be moths in the dark. But the world needs both to keep turning, turning...
Jeanne Willis uses beautiful, evocative language in this gentle story. And whilst I'm not always a fan of Tony Ross's illustrations, in this book both words and pictures work perfectly together.
Some reviews have suggested it's quite a sophisticated message. I agree that young children won't understand the deeper meaning to the story but they will enjoy the whimsical language and soft illustrations. It's a perfect bedtime story that will remain relevant for several years.

Format: Hardcover
This is a nicely written book with nice illustrations. Its got some pretty abstract ideas/concepts/comparisons in it which my 3 yr old doesnt understand but she still likes it. To appreciate/understand it fully i would say it suited 5yrs plus really.

Saw this book at school and was impressed with it. Wanted my own version for grandchildren to enjoy. Arrived in plenty of time and really good value.
