A caterpillar crawls out of an apple and retreats into its cocoon. As the seasons change, the caterpillar becomes a butterfly. Setting itself free, the butterfly feeds on a flower that grows into an apple, bringing the story full circle. With simple yet striking graphic-style illustrations, this classic wordless picture book, originally published in Italy in 1969, is sure to appeal to both children and adults.
