Review:

Three insects see a caterpillar and wonder if they can become friends. The spider and the cricket think that a caterpillar is too ugly to be their friend but the ant wonders if something beautiful is inside. This book teaches about respect for others, friendship, diversity and shows how an ugly caterpillar changes to a beautiful butterfly. Children will love the pictures that are printed on glossy paper. This book won the Benjamin Franklin Award. A counselor or teacher would be able to use this book to teach several virtues. --June Wilson Shaver Elementary School, Parkrose S.D.

Speckles the spider and Crumbs the cricket think Katy the caterpillar is much to ugly to be their friend. But Annie the ant doesn't agree, and she and Katy become best friends. As Katy the caterpillar begins her strange transformation into a beautiful butterfly, her friend Annie is shocked and amazed. Speckles and Crumbs finally learn that true meaning of Beauty and friendship-and caterpillars? This lively and original story of respect for others by Carl Sommer is perfectly illustrated in full color by Greg Budwine and is very highly recommended for young readers, grades K-4."" --The Children's Bookwatch, June 2001
