As the title suggests,
the butterfly and its life cycle is the book's subject. Besides
picturing a number of different butterflies and sharing some basic
information about them, the author takes the reader through the
phases from laying eggs, through the caterpillar stage and to the
safety of the chrysalis. Then, after a few weeks, the transformation
is complete and out emerges the beautiful butterfly.
