?[Castrillón?s] wild drawings carry a decorative impulse to unexpected heights.??New York Times

A stunningly illustrated picture book about a curious caterpillar searching for the true meaning of the word ?beautiful.? But is there one true meaning?or many? 

A caterpillar lives a simple life on his leaf until one day, an UnKnown Thing picks him up and calls him beautiful. A question forms in the caterpillar?s mind: ?What is beautiful??

So begins a quest to discover the true meaning of the word beautiful. Much to the caterpillar?s surprise, each animal in the forest has their own unique definition: 

A bear declares that honeycomb is beautiful! 

The squirrels say leaves are beautiful! 

A mole says his burrow is beautiful!

What?s a caterpillar to do? 

How Beautiful offers kids an immersive, memorable experience. Elaborate and vivid illustrations by Melissa Castrillón, author of Yellow Kayak and If I Had a Little Dream, combine with a sweet, central message: 

  • Beauty is as diverse as we are.
  • ?Beautiful? means something different to everyone, and that?s okay!
  • The beauty of the natural world is worth celebrating!
