Caterpillar, Butterfly

Author: Vivian French
Illustrator: Charlotte Voake
Publisher: Walker

There are parallel stories being told in this book, one a personal account, the other more conventionally factual but still using imaginative language. Charlotte Voake’s illustrations, in soft greens and greys on a creamy background are an integral part of this book’s charm. Interesting facts about the life cycle of the butterfly are curved around the pictures in a different typeface from the one used for the central narrative.
