Story of the Afternoon: Ladybug Lily by Adolpha Cole
Finally old enough to play with other ladybugs, Lily realizes she doesn’t have as many black spots as other ladybugs. Obsessed with figuring out how to get more spots, she stops playing with her friends.
She finds a witch that agrees to put more spots on her back, but only if Lily returns to the witch’s hut with more ladybugs to watch it happen.
Lily convinces some of her friends to see the witch’s magic, only to be captured by the witch for use in her potions. In the end, Lily discovers her special gift that helps save her friends…and herself.
