A tiny caterpillar begins its journey towards becoming a magnificent butterfly.

The Butterfly and the Ants tells the wonderful true story of a butterfly's lifecycle. 'Blue' might seem an odd name for a small caterpillar, but follow him as he meets some welcoming ants, produces honey and undergoes an amazing transformation. You'll also discover how he gets his name!

Beautifully illustrated, this engaging story offers an insight into the fascinating relationships between plants, butterflies and ants.

Reading level varies from child to child, but we recommend this book for ages 6 to 9.
