From School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Clara is the plain Jane of the caterpillar set, which is fine with her. However, crimson-colored Catisha thinks that Clara is positively dull. When they become butterflies, Clara is cream-colored, perfect for hiding camouflaged in the camellias. Catisha is brilliant red, and a sitting duck for a hungry crow. Predictably, Clara saves Catisha's life, proving that colorless and clever is better than flashy and frivolous. The text is a lesson in alliteration ("`Catisha is conceited,' comforted Cornelius"). The pictures are an interesting combination of realistically rendered backgrounds and insect bodies with faces drawn in the style of Dr. Seuss. An additional purchase.
