This is my nephew's favorite book of this series. It's about a narcissistic weasel named Prettina who learns a life changing lesson by meeting a tattered old butterfly named Gossamer. I like that it doesn't exactly have a happy ending, yet it's one that you know everything is going to be okay moving forward for the protagonist.
