An adorable mini edition of Sibylle von Olfers' classic nature story with art nouveau illustrations. Perfect for fans of Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies and Elsa Beskow.
Far far away, the butterfly children play, dance and sing all day long with their little brothers and sisters, the caterpillars. The children can't wait until the first day of spring, when they will finally get their wings. But first, they must learn about the many brightly colored flowers in the kingdom, so they can take part in the flying procession of peacock, swallowtail, red admiral and many other butterflies.
Sibylle von Olfers' vintage stories of nature children (The Story of the Snow Children, The Story of the Root Children and The Story of the Wind Children) have been loved by generations. The whimsical tales are accompanied by beautiful art nouveau illustrations of characterful creatures, cheerful plants and flowers and magical little folk.
