The Butterfly Dance by Suzanne Barton (Bloomsbury Publishing)
Suzanne Barton's new book "The Butterfly Dance" slid onto our doormat, and into our hearts.
We are suckers for a book that looks so gorgeous that you wish you could up and transport yourself into that little world. So meet two friends ready for some fun and adventures.
Dotty and Stripe begin life as caterpillars, and they do everything together.
They love to play, they adore eating leaves and do all sorts of caterpiller-y things just as friends do.
Then one day, after spinning themselves into snuggly cocoons, they wake up as beautiful butterflies!
Dotty and Stripe very quickly realise that they're very different in appearance though, but does that really matter when you're the best of friends?
We mentioned the current children's book 'trend' for books about friendship and being happy with who you are, which is a message that never gets old and tired in the current climate. Let Dotty and Stripe win you over just as much as they've won us over too!
"The Butterfly Dance" by Suzanne Barton is out now, published by Bloomsbury (kindly sent for review)
