“Originally, this story was written for my nine year old son, Elijah. Like the weaving of a tapestry, I attempted to blend biblical imagery with a taste for adventure and the magnificent splendor of butterflies, one of creation's sublime expressions,” states the author. “This allegory of the born again Christian experience is my endeavor to make a supernatural event become natural. It's down-to-earth, where the kids are, and my nine year old heartily approves! Additionally, this story promotes perseverance, fosters faith, and ignites the imagination.”
Terence Lewis is sixty-four, a father and grandfather, who loves children's stories and fondly remembers story time as one of his favorite memories.

He majored in English in high school and two years of college; he studied illustration at Kendall School Of Design, in Grand Rapids, MI. He has taught the Bible and preached in numerous churches.
