Caterpillar lives alone in fear of her surroundings as everything seems large and strange. Refusing to spend time with her friends Wallaby, Goanna, and Snake, Caterpillar misses out on beautiful sunsets and companionship. Eventually she emerges from her chrysalis as Butterfly, ready to enjoy everything around her after discovering that she is not alone. A modern tale of overcoming personal fears, this brightly covered, uniquely indigenous story conveys a universal message.

Ambelin Kwaymullina is the award-winning author and illustrator of Crow and the Waterhole and coauthor and illustrator of the The Two-Hearted Numbat.
