"This story takes children through the metaphorical journey of a caterpillar that eventually becomes a butterfly, and in so doing faces some of the fears that often plague children and adults alike - the fear of failure and the fear of change."

Lady Flatterley is a caterpillar who lives high in the tall oak tree and through her vision of the world and rhyming prose, children will learn about the stages of life.

Lady Flatterley has dreamed of being a beautiful butterfly her entire life. Her friends seem to love her just the way she is with a soft coat of orange and black, but Lady Flatterley wants to fly high on the breeze.

One day a butterfly lands on Lady Flatterley's branch in the oak tree. The butterfly tells her that one day she too will be a beautiful butterfly.

The gorgeous illustrations and cleaver rhymes will delight children with the story of Lady Flatterley and her transformation from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly.

In addition to being a mother of two and the grandmother of five, Linda Wagner is also a RN. Her family was her inspiration in writing this wonderful book. Lady Flatterley would make a perfect Christmas gift for that favorite child in your life.



A children’s coloring book that tells the story of the capture, rescue and rehabilitation of an infant chimpanzee in an African sanctuary is now being distributed by the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) for use in its conservation education programs.

 “The Story of a Baby Chimpanzee” was written and edited by PASA educators in Uganda, Cameroon, Sierra Leone and the United States, and illustrated by American artist Pearl Ollie. The text is in both English and French, and includes fact sheets on chimpanzees, gorillas and bonobos.

 The 30-page coloring book was made possible through the technical, logistical and financial support of the Brevard Zoo, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), the Columbus Zoo, and the Twycross Zoo. Graphic designer Jerry Hanzl of Digital Art by Jerry in the U.S. provided the layout.

 “PASA is extremely proud of this collaborative effort,” said Doug Cress, executive director of PASA. “As often happens, the lack of education materials that specifically address the issues of bushmeat or conservation or ecology from a sanctuary point of view required us to create out own. This coloring book will be a valuable tool as PASA educators seek to engage an even wider audience.”

 PASA member sanctuaries currently receive almost 400,000 visitors per year, and PASA education programs are targeted primarily at rural schools, communities and towns. Studies have shown that PASA education programs are effective at changing local attitues regarding hunting and conservation.

 All 18 PASA sanctuaries in 12 African countries will receive shipments of the coloring book to distribute.

 “The Story of a Baby Chimpanzee” follows an infant as her family is killed by hunters in the forest, and she is captured for sale in a city. When a child notices the chimpanzee and remembers that her teacher had stressed the importance of protecting animals, she alerts the police. The police arrest the man trying to sell the chimpanzee, and take the confiscated chimpanzee to a PASA sanctuary.

 Over time, the chimpanzee regains its health, and learns to bond with other orphans in the sanctuary.

PASA was formed in 2000 to unite the sanctuaries that care for chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos, drills and literally thousands of other endangered primates across Africa.
