Laurie Agusti (1987) studied art and is an illustrator. Her first book was published in 2014 and since then, she has been illustrating books for adults and children, including a new edition of Dante’s The Divine Comedy. She lives and works in Paris.
The caterpillar of a butterfly wakes up a little early in the middle of the night because it is hungry. At first, it is afraid of the unknown dark world, interspersed with lights, but fortunately, it quickly finds companions. With their help, it realises that the night is not only scary but also very beautiful. The book praises the adventurous spirit and openness within us. With her accurate and careful drawing and clear colours, the author sensually depicts the experience of the caterpillar and transports us to its mysterious world.
