Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell evokes a sense of childlike wonder with the words of her classic song "Both Sides Now": "I've looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down, and still somehow..."
Alan Baker's delightful illustrations transform her words into the beguiling tale of two caterpillars about to become butterflies. This metamorphosis fascinates children and gains new beauty through this very special collaboration.
Joni Mitchell's popularity and musical influence span three decades. Her first album, simply entitled Joni Mitchell, established her in 1968 as one of the preeminent talents of her generation. Many of Ms. Mitchell's songs have become classics, among them "Both Sides Now," "The Circle Game," "Chelsea Morning," and "Big Yellow Taxi."
Alan Baker is one of Britain's most distinguished children's book illustrators. He is best known for his Benjamin books.
