The story of a butterfly may not seem wild,
but this tale was written to help every child.
Nevis dreams about getting out of his cocoon,
yet neither kicking nor screaming is helping soon.
That’s how Nevis’ story starts unhappily,
but then he notices, how happy he can be.
In the insect kingdom they promise,
that every human summons happiness,
if he only reads this book to kids
and then closes both eyelids.
Whether this is really true,
you decide, but only for you.
“A nice cuddly evening in gray November, cozy reading with dad, mom, and Nevis, the little caterpillar.
With childish rhymes, we accompany the development of the little green friend, who wants to grow, but feels trapped in his cocoon.
Who does not know that ? We compare, expect and are discouraged. But then it´s too much for our friend. He does not want to just dream of happiness. He starts to determine his life-direction by himself!
Together with Nevis, the reading family gets caught on a fantasy trip, leading to happiness.
Our caterpillar does not get his happiness by freeing himself from the cocoon. It´s his path to happiness, that makes him a butterfly.
Beautiful, for all ages! We have all been able to immerse ourselves in the beautiful pictures.
Being happy with Nevis is a great Santa or Christmas present!”
