Start your review of The Butterfly: Down in the Garden
This is the second book in the Down in the Garden series and like the others, it rides the fiction/nonfiction line.

This book is about a butterfly. It starts as a caterpillar, having to eat and hide from birds and then it becomes a butterfly. This would make a good alternate to The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
