- "Far, far away from here in the magical Butterfly Kingdom live the brilliant and joyful butterfly folk. The little butterfly children are called chrysalids."
The butterfly children love dancing among the flowers and visiting their little brothers and sisters the caterpillars. Then, on the first day of spring, they finally get their wings! The sky is full of peacock, swallowtail, cabbage and red admiral butterflies excitedly waiting to begin the torchlight procession.
Young children will love meeting the cheeky baby caterpillars and the adventurous chrysalids and will come to understand about the life cycle of a butterfly in a unique and charming way.
