When playing in her garden one day, Lucy finds a beautiful, brightly coloured butterfly.

The next day the butterfly has gone but while looking for it she discovers that many other colourful creatures including bees, ladybirds and caterpillars are living right under her nose.

 

An interesting and original introduction to colour, as seen in the living world of a little girl's back garden. Petr Horáček's lively illustrations will fascinate any child who has searched for minibeasts and been captivated by their intricate activities.

 

Peep-through holes, cutouts and a magnificent final page pop-up add interest and an interactive element.

About the author

  • Petr Horacek

    I grew up in Prague in the Czech Republic. Just outside our flat there was a wood where I spent lots of time playing with friends. We would climb on piles of soil or build bunkers from forgotten builder's materials. I always wanted to be an illustrator, but I preferred to look at the pictures inside the books rather than to read them. I would listen to the story or watch a film and then fill up my sketchbook with pictures and images from the story. I started to read books quite late, but I haven't stopped since.
