Get your paws ready for crafty time! From beloved author Charise Mericle Harper comes Crafty Cat and the Great Butterfly Battle, a new adventure in the Crafty Cat graphic novel series.
Everyone in Miss Domino's class is excited about the school play and its lead role, the super-sparkly butterfly. Birdie knows she’d be perfect for the part—unfortunately, she’s not the only one who feels that way. Eight other classmates also want the starring role. And even worse, one of them is Anya! And doesn’t Anya always seem to get her way?
Who can save the day? Crafty Cat! As her alter-ego, Birdie can craft her way out of any disaster. With tape, tissue paper, and her can-do spirit, Birdie will find a way to shine on stage.
Join in the fun: Instructions for five easy do-it-yourself projects are included.
