Being a beautiful butterfly is a lovely existence – spending your days fluttering from flower to flower and supping tasty pollen. But it can also be a pretty scary existence since you represent a tasty meal for many birds, dragonflies, spiders and lots of other adversaries.

There is a lot of danger out there and you have to be very careful, very watchful and very skilful in your manoeuvres to avoid being picked off.

In this little book, children will learn to name many of the butterflies they see each summer in England and also learn about the hazards that butterflies face on a daily basis – including coping with the British weather!

The book is designed to be proactive for young children when read with an adult and involves the child taking a role in each page, responding verbally and physically as well as singing along with the butterfly song!

Barrie Lawrence was born in 1941 in Neath, South Wales, and brought up in Swansea. In the ’60s, he studied physics at Cardiff University and then, as a schoolmaster, went on to teach physics and mathematics in numerous schools and colleges in England. On his retirement, he raised significant funds for the Water Aid charity by making regular presentations as a voluntary speaker in schools, churches, and rotary clubs. In 2013, he achieved a life-long ambition by running the London Marathon, also for charity.

Today, his life centres around his family – his lovely wife, Liz, two brilliant sons, and three delightful grandchildren, Letty Maya, Jonah, and Archer. His butterflies!
