Far Flutterbyby Karen Kingsbury, Jennifer A. Bell (Illustrator)
“I wonder,” he said, as he inched up a tree,“If there’s more to this life than just branches and leaves.”Once in the land of Better-Than-Brown lived Cody the Caterpillar, down on the ground. His life he found boring; he wanted much more; then a message of hope told him he would soon soar. A place called Far Flutterbyit just couldn’t be! He thought, That’s only a dream for a small one like me. But God has a plan filled with wondrous things, and Cody would find that through hard times come wings.

My son received this as a gift and when we first read it I fell in love. Now that he's a little older he can appreciate it. It has such a sweet story explaining how God has a better plan for us, we just has to wait. I love the point of view and the illustrations are beautiful! If you haven't, I suggest checking this one out!
I dont like it. I love it!
"Mommy look!" Willow called to minnow. She had caught her first prey. It was a small vole. "How did you catch it? Did streak have to pin it down for you?" She snarled "N-no" she stuttered. She thought her mother would be proud. She had been trying to impress minnow for 3 moons now. But all her mother did was give sarcastic replies, critisize, or scold her. She slumped in her nest. Mouse and tadpole were sneering at her. "Its obvious you arent loved" mouse snarled "yeah. Just go away! Mother would be happier" tadpole hissed "we dont like you either" mouse spat. Then mouse bit her leg and tadpole scratched her muzzle. Willow, crushed and hurt, scampered out of the den and ran as far as she could. She ran and ran away from her cruel home. She didnt look back once. She was too frightened. Suddenly she heard a loud sound. She crept up to it. It was a strange pink creature that only had fur on the top of its head. It was shouting to another creature. She curiously poked her head out. (Tell me if you like ;))
This book is a blatant rip-off of Max Lucado's Hermie series. Same insects, same story. I can't believe a supposed Christian author like Karen Kingsbury would treat another Christian author so horribly. I won't be buying anymore of her books. Her lack of integrity is appalling. Get Hermie: A Common Caterpillar instead!
