Flutterbyby Stephen Cosgrove
Synopses & Reviews
A tiny winged horse named Flutterby flies about the Island of Serendipity trying to discover who she is and why. She thinks she might be an ant and merrily joins them in their chores. She picked up a large crumb of bread in her mouth and got in line with the other ants. Sadly, she got stuck in the entrance of the ant nest. She definitely was not an ant. She tried to be a bee and fluttered about sipping the nectar from the flowers in the garden. Her mouth full, she flew back to the beehive. Unfortunately, with a simple gulp she swallowed all of the nectar, and then accidentally leaped into the center of the honeycomb. She definitely was not a bee. She did a bit of this and a bit of that, but nowhere could she find where she belonged. Through a series of magical misadventures, she discovered that she is most special just being who she is.
Volume #5 of the Serendipity Series
A tiny winged horse named Flutterby flies about the island of Serendipity trying to discover her special purpose in life. Through a series of magical misadventures, she discovers she is very special just being herself.
About the Author
Stephen Cosgrove was born and raised in the Northwest. In 1973, while working as vice president of an investment company, he went to a bookstore to buy a book for his three-year-old daughter. He was looking for a fun-to-read story that contained a subtle message, but instead found very little of the content that he wanted. Consequently, he decided to write his own stories. Influenced by his childhood love of Aesop’s Fables, his first story and all the books that followed reflect a sense of value in the plot and their natural positive resolutions. Teaming with Seattle illustrator Robin James, Cosgrove went on to created four titles that became the foundation of his Serendipity series (over 80 million sold); however, the moral reflections within the books caused them to be rejected by publishers. Finally, in response, Cosgrove founded Serendipity Press. Years later, Cosgrove merged his thriving publishing company with Penguin/Putnam and focused his efforts on writing and the creation of multimedia events for children.
