Butterfly Birthday

by Harriet Ziefert , illustrated by Mark Jones




Butterfly Birthday completes a quartet of books—Snow Party, Mermaid Dance and By the Light of the Harvest Moon—that celebrates the many and miraculous wonders of the changing seasons. On the first day of spring, bugs—dressed in their finest attire—greet one another after the long, cold winter and hold a spectacular party to welcome the vernal equinox. Mark Jones' beautiful and bewitching pastel illustrations bring this magical world to life.
