My Review

Wesley is a really cute story for youngsters with good life lessons to learn. As with people some think they are much better than others, whether they are better looking or have better material things. In this story the better ones, or so they believe are the butterflies, and the other bugs are the “dirt eaters,” a rather subservient term.
Something goes rather wrong when Wesley, the Kings son, goes into his cocoon to become a butterfly, and when he immerges he is one of the dirt eaters, a spider. Poor Wesley his life sure take a severe turn, he is no longer the top of the insects, as they believe themselves to be.
We are shown in a cute way, what happens when we listen to the wrong people and how our world can get turned upside down. Will this happen to Wesley, guess that is a sure bet, but what happens to all of the insects when their world is about to collapse. We are shown how quickly our life can change with danger lurking, and learning to listen to what your mind is telling you, and acceptance of others.
A fun read with lots of lessons to be learned!
I received this book through I Am A Reader, Not A Writer Book Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
