Title

"Her Caterpillar Summer" typescript

Description

In the typescript of "Her Caterpillar Summer", Cormier tells of the summer when his daughter turned six, where she is still a caterpillar waiting to become a butterfly. He talks of her awkward movements, her dwindling number of teeth, and her sudden fear of the water. He cannot express with words his support for his daughter and she does not yet realize the weights of the changes that will come. The typescript features several crossings-out and handwritten additions.
