Butterfly bursts out of her chrysalis and immediately wants to get closer to the blue sky above but she has no idea how to launch herself. After repeated tumbles she appeals to flight experts all over the world for help. Her search goes to Italy, France, China, Scotland and Brazil. Each time, she tries out a new suggestion and each time, she lands back on earth (sometimes with a painful bump). When, eventually, she appeals to her mother for help, Butterfly takes off without even realizing it, and so her quest for flight is at an end -- “How happy am I, at last I can fly!

From the Trade Paperback edition.

(Oddly, at least for U.S. audiences, Butterfly does not meet an Orville or a Wilbur.) Each time she glides, Butterfly exults, "How happy am I, at last I can fly!"
