Book Synopsis:
Hu Mei sat on a low sagging branch of the giant tree playing peek-a-boo with her butterfly friend. A soft current of air wove the willow's finger-like leaves into a lacy green cocoon that hid almost all of Hu Mei. Only her tiny legs could be seen, dangling like empty swings in the breeze. She looked up and there was Wang Fu, the village's mean boy who was always in a bad mood. When he reaches for the butterfly, Hu Mei's mouth makes a big O, trying to cry out “NO!” A puff of whisper was all that came out. Wang Fu did not hear it, but the butterfly did and it slipped out of Wang Fu's greedy hands. A gentle breeze appeared, lifting the crumpled butterfly out of his reach. Find out what happens next as the butterfly leads Hu Mei on a journey to The Shimmering Secret. You may--rhymes with Hu Mei--be surprised when the secret finds it way into Wang Fu's heart too!
