CHAPTER 1

Small Pond


Tim woke up one morning and crawled out of his tree. It was a nice summer day, so he wanted to play. He looked everywhere to find someone to play with, but he could not find anyone his own age.

He was very lonely, so he crawled along the riverbank.

He heard someone call to him. "Hi, you up there, who are you?" He looked all around and could not see anyone. So again someone said, "Hi, you up there, I am down here in the water. My name is David. I am a tadpole, what are you?"

"I am a caterpillar," said Tim. "Do you want to be my friend?"

"Yes," said David.

So they played all day.

"It is getting late," said Tim. "I must go home."

"Can we play again tomorrow?" asked David.

"Yes," said Tim. "We will meet here in the morning."

That night, an amazing thing happened. David grew legs and arms, and he hopped out of the water. David was so happy he could get out of the water. He could not wait to tell Tim, so he waited under Tim's tree all night.

But an amazing thing was also happening to Tim, for Tim was growing wings. And when Tim awoke, he could not wait to see David. Tim was a butterfly now, so he flew out of his tree, and there was David waiting for him.
