Friendship comes in all shapes and sizes! Originally published in 1969, this original Bernadette Watts story is now back in print with brand new, radiant illustrations.

Hans Millermann is lonely and longs for the company of a friend. The little green caterpillar that lives with him in the mill is not good enough, so he goes out into the world to find a real friend. He is happy to befriend a snowflake, a flower, or even a fox. But none are willing to be his friend in return—not even the wind. The wind reminds Hans that they both still have something important to do. When Hans returns home to the mill, he finds a surprise: a beautiful butterfly is waiting for him. Could it be the caterpillar that Hans had previously disregarded?  
Bernadette Watts has delighted children around the world with her timeless tales and expressive art. This sweet story about recognizing friendship in all of its disguises will warm hearts and open minds. 

The original edition of Hans Millerman was published in 1969. For her 80th birthday, Bernadette completely re-illustrated the book with colorful illustrations that give this universal story a new shine
