Publisher's Synopsis

This classic story is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Hope for the Flowers is an inspiring allegory about the realization of one's true destiny as told through the lives of caterpillars Stripe and Yellow, who struggle to climb to the top before understanding that they are meant to fly.


"It can't be true!" gasped Yellow.

"How can I believe there's a butterfly inside you or me when all I see is a fuzzy worm?"

"How does one become a butterfly?" she asked pensively.

"You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."

"You mean die?" asked Yellow, remembering the three who fell out of the sky.

"Yes and No," he answered.

"What looks like you will die but what's really you will still live. Life is changed, not taken away. Isn't that different from those who die without ever becoming butterflies?"
