So cute!! I love Serendipity Books and the morals they share with the cutest characters.
I absolutely love everything about every book these two make. When I was a child, I would read these and they made me super happy. Every once in a while, when I need a cheering up or just for a fun and light read, I will read them. Who cares if I'm an adult?! I can have my preferences with cute little children's books too! Anyway, they made my imagination what it is today, and I still look back at these books with happiness. Even though they are very short and yes sometimes sappy, they are a HUG [...]
I rated every book that I read during childhood 5 stars.Why? Well because that was a time in my life when I loved every single thing I read. And because they bring back fond memories. Ah, the joys of being young!
This was my very first book, and I adore it! the story is so cute, about Flutterby discovering her place in the world it is magical, touching and incredibly sweet I still have my copy and I cherish it so such a beautiful book!! It is also part of the serendipity series.
A sweet, short, fun little story about a confused baby Pegasus who doesn't know who or what she is at first. She tries to fit in with other animals, but simply isn't the same as others and so she feels isolated and alone. Until a wise old butterfly reveals to her that she's special and important because she is unique. Thus, all becomes right again with the world.
These books are not as great as I remember them being, but they're still pretty cute. The lesson learned by Flutterby: Be who you are. Square pegs, round holes; that whole deal.
So I loved horses in general as a kid (who am I kidding, I still do) and a flying horse would've been the bestest best. I have the feeling that I loved this book purely for the illustrations when I was younger--but as an adult, I am underwhelmed. The illustrations are still pretty, but I have no real idea what the story is doing. Yes, it's about being yourself (whatever that may be), but Flutterby ends up alone. Good on her for keeping an eye out for frost, but can't she have some friends? And w [...]
As with the other Serendipity books that I have read, "Flutterby" deals with issues of self-discovery and making peace with simply being oneself. Stephen Cosgrove writes with a light touch, yet manages to fit a good amount of meaning into the few pages that comprise most of his stories. Flutterby's journey to find out who she is and what she is meant to do will easily be identified with by any readers that have encountered similar situations in their own lives.
The stories of the Serendipity books have always been white noise to me. They're all about the art, and it is gorgeous. Anyone will be inspired upon looking at James' work.
I loved how this book starts out: "In a burst of laughter and moonshine one fine and beautiful evening, Fluttterby was born". The author has an amazing way with words - so descriptive, so simple and so clear. And then to have them completed by such beautiful illustrations. The plot has so many similarities with the original "Serendipity" although one is of the air and one is of the sea while the latter didn't emphasize this lesson although it was there.
I hated to read when I was young, the stories in childrens' books just never caught my interest unless it was about animals. Dr. Seuss, and Clifford the Big Red Dog were some other series' I like but still not as interesting as the Serendipity books. As well as zoobooks and non-fictional writing about animals.
This is a wonderful book series for kids that want to work toward reading chapter books but are not quiet there yet. Every other page has a beautiful illustration next to a page that is not overwhelming with text.I remember reading this as a kid and loving it. What girl wouldn't love a story of a flying tiny horse?
This was perhaps one of my favourite childhood books. How can you go wrong, with a flying horse?? I was a little girl, and this was just the ultimate story. I was in love with the beautiful illustrations, and the story was fantastic, with a message I'm glad I was reading then (and wish maybe I would remember more nowadays).
OMG! I have been looking for this book for years. I had this when I was a little girl and I loved it so much. The illustrations are so beautiful. I used to want to have my very own Flutterby. I've searched and search for this book, and I have just this very minute found it and ordered it. I cannot wait to receive it.
As a child, I was absolutely entranced by this little winged horse. This was one of my most cherished books because of both the delightful story and the wonderful artistry. I would recommend any of Cosgrove's books to children (and some folks older than children, too), but this one is especially noteworthy.
This series of books is the most wonderfully illustrated, sweetest series available for children. Each book is beautiful, the animals are so sweetly drawn and each book teaches a wonderful lesson. I still have all of my original copies from my childhood (the 90s).
Ok, but I've seen better books with this message: Be who you are. I like the mini winged horse, but horses have always attracted me. The butterfly does give some good advice by pointing out what the horse can do and giving her a task to do. I liked that.
adorable book i found at an antique store. perfect for children :D
loved this as a kid, had my Dad read it to me all the time :o)
Flutterby (Serendipity) by Stephen Cosgrove (1995)
A childhood fav that resulted in us kids looking for pegasus cocoons and tiny pegasuses flitting about our garden. So cute, so sweet
childhood fave :)
This was cute. Not as good as some of this series, but a nice little book.
My favorite. Ever. Seriously. Flutterby makes me warm inside. xD
The first book i ever read on my own.

Lovely cover. Pretty illustrations. Cute ending.
A little too saccharin for my taste.
Beautifully illustrated and a sweet little story with morale. A wonderful story to share with your loved ones.
One of my favorite books as a child!
