“It’s going slow, but I am going up,” the caterpillar thinks. She dug and scratched, and slowly she could
make out light above. The world above was big and new.
“I hope no one notices me,” the caterpillar thought as she carefully crawled out.
On sparkling and colorful spreads, the tiny caterpillar’s difficult journey from caterpillar to butterfly is depicted. About what it is like to be in the middle of a process of development when everything is changing, but you don’t really understand what is happening or how to do it. Even if the way there feels both incomprehensible and full of obstacles.
