When a group of caterpillars scamper up a tree to metamorphosize, one of them is still learning about this whole transformation thing. Who knew that with a little time and patience he could become a beautiful butterfly? But the two-week wait inside his chrysalis feels interminable. His fellow caterpillars encourage him to let nature take its course, but the waiting is just so hard. Based on the children's book by Ross Burach.
