Author-illustrator Marc Majewski delivers a gorgeously painted, tender story about a young child who loves dressing up as a butterfly. This picture book is a celebration of creativity, self-expression, and family.
I am a butterfly.
I spin and swirl,
twist and twirl,
flutter and flap,
and when I open my wings,
In author-illustrator Marc Majewski’s stunning picture book, a young child loves the spots and patterns found on butterflies. He fashions himself beautifully bold orange wings and proudly declares himself a butterfly child. But when other kids shun him for the clothes they don’t understand, it takes a father’s encouragement for the young boy to stay true to himself and find joy in his wings once more.
Full-color illustrations were created in acrylics.
