Far, far away, the butterfly folk live in a kingdom of beautiful gardens. The butterfly children play, dance, and sing all day long with their little brothers and sisters, the caterpillars.
The children can hardly wait until the first day of spring, when they will finally get their wings. First, however, they must learn about the many brightly colored flowers in the kingdom, so they can take part in the flying procession of peacock, swallowtail, red admiral, and many other butterflies.
Sibylle von Olfers (1881 - 1916) is also the author of The Story of the Root Children.
