LITTLE GIRL. CLOUD CASTLES. HONEY. ALL THE THINGS YOU NOTICED AS A CHILD AND THEN FORGOT. THE CEILING IS A CAKE.

Six-year-old Joy lives in Mississauga with her parents, baby sister Noel, and quiet Uncle Tommy. She looks for gold in dark closets, swims through soft mountains, befriends uncertainty, and comes out looking different each time.

Caterpillar Portraits tells of little moments along Joy's search for the 'not yet': the thing that satisfies, fits and fills; the mystery working away inside the cocoon while the young caterpillar dreams, ultimately turning her into a butterfly.

Caterpillar Portraits was launched by Penrose Press two years ago as our debut publication. It sold out almost immediately. This edition is for everyone who missed out on the first edition and everyone who wanted to recommend it to a friend but didn't want to give up their copy. Now with an introduction by R. Wahedi.

This edition includes all of the same illustrations as before, all printed digitally. It measures 4.37" wide and 7" tall. We classify it as a novella based on length and recommend it for readers aged 10 and up.
