Kirkus Review

This visually appealing tale gently relates the colorful life story of a monarch butterfly.

In what is clearly an homage to Eric Carle’s iconic children’s classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this charming debut picture book follows a monarch butterfly…preparing to make her 2,000-mile journey to Mexico…

…soothing…well positioned art…this visually appealing tale gently relates the colorful life story of a monarch butterfly.

Front and end pages contain interesting facts

DID YOU KNOW:

Fact number 6.  There are four generations of monarchs. The first three generations live two to six weeks, but the fourth generation lives seven to nine months because they have to travel very far, and hibernate during the winter.

It all started when I wanted to make my son a sequel to his favorite book 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. The process of creating colorful collages, cutting and pasting papers, and seeing ideas come to life was so liberating that, by the end of this story, I too felt like I had emerged from some unseen cocoon to become an author and illustrator.
