About the Book
The Caterpillar who dreamed of flying!
An enchanting forest full of beautiful tall trees gushing rivers and lovely lakes
bright foliage everywhere you looked
brilliant coloured flowers everywhere
what else could you wish for?
Ahhh! you and I could be perfectly
happy in such an exotic place
but not our little friend.
Meet Melvin a beautiful caterpillar who lived with his many siblings
among the milk thistle bushes.
Melvin would have the greatest time chomping on the delicious green leaves
playing with his insect friends.
Among the shady trees, on the many branches
Melvin would explore his beautiful surroundings.
Every day, he would make new friends and discover something
new and wonderful until one day
he suddenly saw a most lovely sight that left him in awe!
Melvin saw some beautiful creatures, brilliantly colored, flying among the trees!
Who were these fascinating beings? Were they fairies?
Were they elves?
A wonderful surprise awaits you, dear Reader!
