Illustrated with stills from the television program with light colored font, children will enjoy identifying the characters they know from the show. Some are named, but there are many faces on each page.

This book offers the message that even though people (and bugs!) may change and grow, they are still the same people they have always been. Katter's friends are supportive, check on her, and are accepting of her new wings and her ability to fly.

There are a larger number of books about the butterfly life cycle than I ever suspected, including the James Dean Pete the Cat and the Cool Caterpillar. The big appeal for this book will be the television tie-in. This story is based on the Beatles' song In My Life, and includes the lyrics at the end of the book. For big fans, there is a list of all of the titles currently out inside the back cover.
Good Points
It's Katter's birthday, and her friends are throwing her a party! There are leaf cakes and decorations, but Katter doesn't feel well at all. Her friends are concerned when she doesn't return, and go to find that she has lain down. Her friends try to wake her up to check on her, but she sleeps for two days straight. When she wakes up, her friends are surprised-- she has a brand new outfit as well as some new abilities.
