Matilda becomes discouraged when she is unable to fly during the early stages of her metamorphosis. But this amazing monarch never gives up on her dream. Unlike her meadowland friends, Matilda doesn't want to leap onto ledges or bound across fields, She only wants to fly. Matilda's friends laugh at her. They wonder: How can a creature without wings ever hope to fly? While Matilda progresses from egg to butterfly, her friends recall how they felt before they could do all of the things that they wanted to do. Encouraged by her friends, Matilda learns that if she keeps trying, she can do anything that she really wants to do.
