School Library Journal - 08/01/2021 PreS-K—As leaf-eating creepy-crawlies, these two best friends naturally love all the same things. Both have many legs, spots, and love to chew leaves into funny shapes. Ornately and uniquely decorated, the pair undergo their metamorphosis inside cheerfully decorated pupas. Weeks later, Moth and Butterfly emerge with fewer legs, antennae, and wings. They fall right into the groove of their former friendship but notice some cumbersome differences. Moth likes to stay out all night. Butterfly is graceful in flight, but Moth cannot stop bumping into things. Will their friendship endure? Whimsical, silly illustrations use bold colors to make this garden paradise really pop. The fast-paced story uses minimal text and a light-hearted narrative to capture the attention of preschoolers. There is not a wealth of content here, but lessons about the natural world and friendship in the face of differences flourish. VERDICT This basic, colorful introduction to metamorphosis and friendship for the youngest of preschoolers is a recommended purchase.—Richelle Rose, Kenton County P.L., KY - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
