Life in the cove is always changing and Myrtle wants to change, too. She is tired of being a plain old sea turtle, and longs to have big beautiful butterfly wings, so she can fly like her best friend Anew. Convinced that her shell is just like a cocoon, Myrtle begins thinking butterfly thoughts and even tries wiggling like a caterpillar. But nothing seems to work and her frustration grows. Only after danger visits the cove does Myrtle finally look within herself to discover that her own unique wings were there all along. All creatures have Wings to set them free. I have found the Wings that are right for ME. This second book in Dr. Franklin Hill's Change Series will inspire readers young and old to find their own Wings Within and discover what makes each one of us so unique and special.
