Owly and Wormy want some butterflies! But when they come home from the nursery with a plant that will attract some fluttering friends, all that show up are fat, green bug things. Bug things are NOT butterflies! But, they are nice and fun and good at sleep outs under the stars and always up for a game of checkers. Fat, green bug might even be better than butterflies! Let's be friends forever! But, the bug things can't stay. When the bugs build their cocoons, Owly and Wormy think they have no friends left at all. They wait. And wait. And wait. And one day...their dreams have come true...and all a flutter! Owly's friends are back....AND they've turned into butterflies. Bold, graphic and full of fun, this wordless storybook will give pre-reader the wings they need to start reading on their own, and a firm footing on the idea of metamorphosis.show more

Review quote

Owly and Wormy, Friends All Aflutter!. Runton, Andy (Author), Runton, Andy (Illustrator) Mar 2011. 40 p. Atheneum, hardcover, $15.99. (9781416957744). Wormy and Owly, the stars of Runton's Owly comics, here make the leap into their first picture book. Wormy is taken with a flock of passing butterflies, so the two ask a raccoon florist what kind of flower they should plant to attract some. When the recommended flower becomes home to two little green caterpillars, they're a bit put off but soon take a shine to the critters. But then the caterpillars disappear before they have a chance to say good-bye. As in the Owly comics, symbols and small pictures take the place of words in the dialogue balloons (e.g., when the raccoon wishes the duo good luck by "saying " a four-leafed clover). The story's midsection is perhaps a little too drawn out for a compact picture-book read, and kids hip to where butterflies come from will easily predict the final twist. On the other hand, the opportunity to decode the dialogue visuals will keep viewers engaged throughout this gently challenging offering. The big cartoon illustrations? A blast! -- Ian Chipman BOOKLIST, February 15, 2011show more
