Description

Adapted by Jean Merrill
Ages 6-10

Izumi has a passion for caterpillars. She studies them, plays with them, talks to them. She prefers the company of scruffy boys who collect insects to that of the noblemen who send her expensive presents. Jean Merrill retells the story found on a twelfth-century scroll, of a free-spirited girl who is determined to be herself. A wonderful story which promotes the value of independence, confidence and self-esteem.
