Westly: A Spiders Tale by Bryan Beus
This is tale of a caterpillar named Westly who is destined to be a Monarch butterfly and the next king of the butterfly kingdom. But sometimes things don't turn out the way we plan. When Westly emerges from his cocoon he is nothing like he expected. As a spider he must rediscover who he is. Adopted by the "dirt eaters," Westly is determined to make a difference. He is determined to belong, to be loved, and most importantly, to become who he was born to be.
My review: This book is way cute! It's about a caterpillar named Westly. He's kind of self absorbed like the other caterpillars and butterflies. He's planning to be the next king. But when in a strange twist of fate, he emerges from his cocoon and discovers that he's turned into some strange bug that no one has ever seen before, his plans change awfully quickly. The thing about Westly is that he could be anyone of us. We all make our plans, and they can all change at any moment. The trick for us and for Westly is learning to deal with and even be happy with the changes that you are given.
This book is written for kids, but it really is a cute book that even adults will enjoy and don't forget to take the time to look at the fun illustrations!
