Friends All Aflutter! by Andy Runton--ADVISABLE

Runton, Andy. Friends All Aflutter! Athenaeum (Simon & Schuster), 2011. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK. The picture book is a companion to Andy Runton’s popular wordless graphic novels about Owly & Wormy. Mostly wordless, the author/illustrator uses symbols and repeated words to tell the story. Owly buys some flowers and plants them. Two cute caterpillars start eating the flower’s leafs and soon they become friends. The caterpillars have to leave for winter, but return in the spring as butterflies. The cartoon illustrations are engaging and expressive. EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
