Binky's Time To Fly
By Sharmila Collins
Illustrated by Carolina Rabei
A heartening story of how coming together and working as a team can produce wonderful results.
When Binky turns from caterpillar to butterfly, it's a disaster! His wings won't work and poor Binky can't fly. Luckily, the spiders, silkworms and bees come to his aid. Together they work out how to give Binky a pair of bright, strong wings.
