Binky's Time to Fly

Publisher: Otter-Barry Books

Binky the butterfly emerges from his cocoon to find that his wings are not the same as those of his friends. They are weak and incomplete, and he's not going to be able to fly.

However, sometimes all we need is the right help and support to find a solution. In this case, Binky finds that this support comes in the form of a network of silkworms, spiders and bees willing to share their skills to help him. Their collective expertise ensures he soon has a pair of wings big and strong enough to get around like all the other butterflies.

This is a heart-warming book with a powerful message about empathy, kindness, and the joy of working collaboratively and helping each other.

It's been written with the aim of raising awareness of a Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare and painful skin condition causing children to have butterfly-thin skin, and the author royalties will be donated to
