Story of the Butterfly Children

£12.99

Product Description:

Far far away, the butterfly folk live in a kingdom of beautiful gardens. The butterfly children play, dance and sing all day long with their little brothers and sisters, the caterpillars. The children can’t wait until the first day of spring, when they will finally get their wings. But first, they must learn about the many brightly coloured flowers in the kingdom, so they can take part in the flying procession of peacock, swallowtail, red admiral and many other butterflies.

Beautifully illustrated in the art nouveau style, this is another classic children’s story from the author of The Story of the Root Children and The Story of the Wind Children.

About the Author: Sibylle von Olfers’ (1881-1916) blend of natural observation and use of simple design has led to comparisons with Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow. Her other published works include The Story of the Root Children, Princess in the Forest, The Story of the Snow Children and The Story of the Wind Children.
