Fly-away hair: a tale of what makes us different and special.

"Once there was a little girl who had butterflies for hair. "So begins Eliza Clark's tender and delightful story about a beautiful girl who doesn't feel beautiful. Splendidly set against the natural world of wild flowers, rivers, birds and insects,in which every creature is unique, Clark's lyrical prose leads us through the girl's yearnings to be the same as everyone else. Her journey of self-discovery shows her that what makes her different is exactly what makes her special. When the little girl meets a friend who has "bottlecaps for hair that glittered, gold as the sun" she appreciates not only her friend's peculiar charms, but gains a deeper respect for her own perfect self.

Butterflies and Bottlecapsis a lyrical, gentle tale, with a moral as light as gossamer and ethereal illustrations to match. Created by an author acclaimed for her adult fiction, this is Eliza Clark's first children's book, a wise and wonderful story that will capture both children and adults alike.
