"This story takes children through the metaphorical journey of a caterpillar that eventually becomes a butterfly, and in so doing faces some of the fears that often plague children and adults alike - the fear of failure and the fear of change."

Lady Flatterley is a caterpillar who lives high in the tall oak tree and through her vision of the world and rhyming prose, children will learn about the stages of life.

Lady Flatterley has dreamed of being a beautiful butterfly her entire life. Her friends seem to love her just the way she is with a soft coat of orange and black, but Lady Flatterley wants to fly high on the breeze.

One day a butterfly lands on Lady Flatterley's branch in the oak tree. The butterfly tells her that one day she too will be a beautiful butterfly.

The gorgeous illustrations and cleaver rhymes will delight children with the story of Lady Flatterley and her transformation from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly.

In addition to being a mother of two and the grandmother of five, Linda Wagner is also a RN. Her family was her inspiration in writing this wonderful book. Lady Flatterley would make a perfect Christmas gift for that favorite child in your life.
