He needs a miracle...Kids will learn about metamorphosis, the process of transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly, and will find out about the cocoon stage in a fun and playful way.

"I am a registered play therapist and I was using the metaphor of a butterfly to illustrate the stages of change and progress in a client, so purchase this book as an adjunct to a three-phase butterfly puppet that I have."
"Love it. It accurately shows all the stages of a caterpillar to a butterfly transformation as a story about a little caterpillar journey. Makes a great bedtime story too - now we have a "cocoon time" instead of a bedtime". Kids march to brush their teeth and make their cocoons. It is written in verse so kids remember and recite lines after just a few re-reads. What else... Great pictures, very likable Rommie character. Really great book !!"
"A very enjoyable book for our 2-year-old and 6-year-old boys. Liked the rhyming, illustrations, and the tale itself."
