Pub. Date:
A fresh, funny story about a feisty caterpillar who breaks through his limitations -- and realizes his fondest dream, by a New York Times bestselling author. When Oscar the caterpillar discovers that he will one day become a butterfly, he's overjoyed. And his friend Edna the bookworm encourages his hopes of flying to Mexico with the other Monarch butterflies. To prepare, Oscar learns Spanish and dreams of flying through the purple Sierra Madre Mountains. But when Oscar emerges from his cocoon with stubby little wings, a craving for the taste of desginer sweaters -- and the urge to take a spin around the bathroom lightbulb-- his dreams are dashed. There will be no trip to Mexico for Oscar -- or will there? (Continued on next page)
