A yellow butterfly flew around in Sonu’s garden.
Sonu saw the butterfly. He ran to catch it.
The butterfly flew to the rose bed. It sat on a red rose.
“Now I can catch it!” said Sonu.
He walked slowly and silently
to catch the butterfly. He came
closer, closer, and still closer,
but then...
Off flew the butterfly!
Where did the butterfly go?
Near the garden was a pond. In
the pond was a white lotus.
Around it grew round leaves.
They floated in the water.
The butterfly sailed on a floating leaf.
Sonu went splash into the water and...
Off flew the butterfly!
Where was it? Sonu looked up, he looked down.
Near the wall was a peach tree. It had pink flowers.
The butterfly sat on a pretty flower.
“I can catch you!” shouted Sonu. He climbed
up the tree. Up, up he climbed, but....
Back it flew, down from the tree.
Sonu jumped down too. He
chased the butterfly,
From the rose,
to the lotus, and,
Up the peach tree, but...
He could not catch the
butterfly.

Sonu could not see it at
all. He looked everywhere.
At last he saw the butterfly.
There was a big spider's
web in the peach tree. The
butterfly was caught in the
spider's web. It looked sad
as it tried to escape. It
fluttered its wings. It twisted
and turned. But it could not
escape. The spider’s web
held it tight.
Poor butterfly!
In the middle of the web was a big spider. It looked hungry.
It wanted to catch the butterfly.
Closer and closer crawled the black spider.
Before the hungry spider could grab it, Sonu ran and...
he caught the butterfly!
It was so pretty. It had brown spots on its yellow wings.
Sonu loved the little butterfly.
But it looked sad in Sonu’s hand.
Sonu wanted it to be happy.
