Synopsis: In this whimsical and spellbinding fable, children learn invaluable lessons on diversity, kindness, self-love, and forgiveness. Patulous, The Different Caterpillar is written by A. Volta and illustrated by Diane Lucas and shares a fresh take on the tale of the ugly duckling by going a step further to teach young readers about friendship and community. As educational as it is inspiring, this children’s book shares the journey of a very odd looking caterpillar. When Patulous—from the Latin word patulus meaning “to open up”—is shunned by fellow fennel leaf-loving friends, the caterpillar is sad and alone until meeting a friendly snail. The snail introduces this different caterpillar to a grasshopper and a ladybug that are more than happy to enjoy a new friend. They help Patulous see true beauty. From egg to larva to molting to silk chrysalis to the inevitable—and in this case—indomitable, one-of-a-kind butterfly that is just about the most beautiful as anyone has ever seen. Also available in hardcover through BookSurge.
