#57 Bella Butterfly

Bella Butterfly is about a lovely brown butterfly who survives a terrible storm. One day Bella Butterfly was gathering sweet nectar in an acorn cup for her friend Benjamin Beetles birthday. Suddenly a storm came and blew hard on Bella’s brown velvet wings. Toby the tulip called to her and she flew into his petals to rest her tattered and torn wings.
